CIRANO is pleased to continue to support the work of the Research Chair in Intergenerational Economics. Raquel Fonseca, Associate Professor at ESG UQAM, CIRANO Researcher and Fellow, and Pierre-Carl Michaud, Full Professor et HEC Montréal, CIRANO Researcher and Fellow, are the co-holders.
The Chair, a partnership between the CIRANO, Retraite Québec, iA Financial Group, UQAM, Université Laval and HEC Montréal that began in 2014, originally had the name Industrial Alliance Research Chair on the Economics of Demographic Change. Entering a second five-year term in 2019, the Chair continues its work thanks to the renewal of its collaboration with the CIRANO, Retraite Québec, UQAM and HEC Montréal.
Chairholders Raquel Fonseca and Pierre-Carl Michaud take the opportunity to strategically reposition the Chair and adopt a new title, namely, Research Chair in Intergenerational Economics. Preserving the same DNA, the work of the Chair is organized around 3 axes – retirement and savings, health, labour market – identified as priorities and transversal to the intergenerational economic issues of demographic transitions.
