In December 2019, André Lemelin, Honorary Professor at National Institute of Scientific Research (INRS) and CIRANO Researcher and Fellow, and Véronique Robichaud, economist, presented their research on the use of the MegBec multiregional model of Quebec to the team from the Direction de la modélisation, de l'analyse économique et des impacts climatiques of the Ministère des Finances du Québec.
This workshop was the first step in the transfer to the MFQ of the MegBec model, developed by André Lemelin and Véronique Robichaud. This transfer takes place within the framework of the CIRANO Pole in modeling the Quebec economy (peMEQ-CIRANO).
About the MegBec multiregional model of Quebec
Developed by André Lemelin and Véronique Robichaud, the MegBec multiregional model of Quebec is a recursive dynamic computable general equilibrium (CGE) model with 16 “analytic” regions. The model is based on a social accounting matrix (SAM) with 44 industries and 63 products. Publication
About the CIRANO Pole in modeling the Quebec economy (peMEQ-CIRANO)
A pole bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field to promote exchanges between government modelers (primarily from the Ministry of Finance - MFQ, but also from other ministries or organizations such as the Institut de la statistique du Québec - ISQ), CIRANO and others, with a view to enabling researchers to better understand the needs of the government and users of government models to identify which models (existing or to be developed) would meet their needs.
