A new group is created at CIRANO: Economics Developement

The research of this new group will be dedicated to major economic issues. Marcelin Joanis, Professor at Polytechnique Montréal, will assume the vice-presidency. The Economic Development group will consolidate CIRANO's position as a leader in Québec's economy, notably by building on its flagship project, Le Québec économique.


The group's objectives are to

  • produce high-level academic research on cutting-edge issues affecting the Québec economy and economic development in general;
  • to be the focal point for the community of researchers interested in these issues;
  • to transfer knowledge to the community of practising economists and the informed general public;
  • educate about the Quebec economy through the development of relevant statistics and themes.
