The winners of CIRANO 2020 Fiscal Policy Challenge had the opportunity to attend the closed-door session of the Quebec 2020-2021 budget on March 10, 2020.
Aimed at university students in economics, finance, taxation, political science or any other related fields, the CIRANO Fiscal Policy Challenge is a competition whose objective is to find innovative and rigorous solutions to current public policy issues.
The 2020 edition of the Challenge focused on labour force challenges.
CIRANO is very pleased with the participation of students representing all of our partner universities.
The winners were selected by a committee composed of university researchers and representatives of the Ministère des Finances du Québec based on criteria such as the originality and quality of the analysis as well as the use of economic data.

They will present the results of their reflection to a team of senior officials from the Ministère des Finances du Québec and will have the opportunity to complete a paid internship at the Ministère des Finances du Québec.
