Jean-Denis Garon (Université du Québec à Montréal), Georges A. Tanguay (Université du Québec à Montréal), Nathalie de Marcellis-Warin (Polytechnique Montréal), Ingrid Peignier (CIRANO) and Jean-Philippe Meloche (Université de Montréal) will present the results of the CIRANO report "Étude des facteurs d’attractivité de la région des Laurentides" (co-written with Molivann Panot).
This study identifies potential levers to promote the attractiveness of the region as a place to live, a place to work, a place conducive to investment and entrepreneurship, and a recreational and tourism destination.
The study consists of two parts:
- An analysis based on objective data relating to the region's attractiveness factors that are most likely to be catalysts for economic and social success; and
- An extensive participatory consultation process (Focus Group and online survey) that studies the perceptions, concerns and needs of stakeholders in the region and the Quebec population as a whole.
By confronting the factual analysis of the region with perceptions, this report draws a portrait of the Laurentians' strengths and weaknesses in terms of attractiveness and proposes areas of work for subsequent stages.
