CIRANO is launching the 2023 Fiscal Policy Challenge !
The Quebec government's budgetary policy is of paramount importance for Quebec's economic development. On the one hand, the budgetary policy implements the government's various policies in various fields of intervention, and on the other hand, it aims to ensure sound management of public finances in order to maintain future financing of the various government missions and to promote equity between generations. However, it is imperative to implement processes to ensure a succession of expertise in public finance, public policy and fiscal policy in Québec.
It is in this context that CIRANO, in collaboration with the Quebec Ministry of Finance, is proposing an academic competition aimed at finding innovative and rigorous solutions to current public policy issues.
Opening date of competition : November 1st 2022
Registration and submission deadline of the essay: March 31, 2023
The competition is open to university undergraduate students (with 30 or more credits) and master's students in economics, political science, taxation or any other related field.
