Un tableau de bord pour la région métropolitaine de Montréal

Montréal est la force motrice du Québec pour ce qui est de l'apport au PIB global et aux recettes fiscales. Pourtant, pour ce qui est de l'activité économique, elle continue à tirer de l'arrière par rapport à la plupart des villes de taille semblable en Amérique du Nord. Beaucoup estiment que l'économie de Montréal est en perte de vitesse (perte de sièges sociaux, croissance relativement faible) et que la ville n'attire pas nécessairement les meilleurs talents. Cette perception est-elle exacte? L'Institut du Québec (IdQ), en collaboration avec la Chambre de commerce du Montréal métropolitain et Montréal International, a comparé Montréal à 14 villes nord-américaines et à quelques villes européennes. La région métropolitaine de Montréal continue d'être relativement intéressante pour les entreprises. Celles-ci y profitent d'un nombre important d'avantages fiscaux, et les frais d'exploitation y sont moins élevés qu'ailleurs en Amérique du Nord. Cependant, une pénurie de main-d'œuvre qualifiée et des faiblesses en matière d'innovation représentent d'importantes lacunes que Montréal doit combler pour concurrencer les autres régions métropolitaines de taille comparable en Amérique du Nord et les villes comparables en Europe. Joignez-vous à nous pour ce webinaire de 60 minutes au cours duquel Jean-Guy Côté présentera les conclusions du premier tableau de bord pour la région métropolitaine de Montréal. L'IdQ prévoit compiler ces indicateurs chaque année afin de suivre de près la performance de Montréal.

Building Strong Cities: The Top 10 Indicators for Economic Development

Economic development professionals are under increasing scrutiny to provide evidence that their efforts are bearing fruit for their communities. Some economic indicators, such as real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and population growth, are fundamental building blocks for any analysis. Others—like foreign direct investment in a region— are harder to obtain, but are invaluable for those who have this kind of evidence. So in a world that is swimming in data, how do you choose which information is right for your community? Join us as Kadie Ward, Founder of Build Strong Cities, indentifies the Top 10 indicators that economic development officials should have at their fingertips, and elaborate on the best ways to utilize these indicators to inform, persuade, and evaluate their development strategies. To introduce the session, Alan Arcand, Associate Director of the Conference Board’s Centre for Municipal Studies, will provide an overview of the Conference Board’s newest economic outlook (Autumn 2015) for 13 of Canada’s major cities.

Reversal of Fortunes: Calgary and Edmonton 2015 Business Outlook Webinar

Following five years of explosive growth, both Calgary and Edmonton have suffered a reversal of fortune, seeing their economies fall into recession in 2015. In fact, among the 13 large cities covered in The Conference Board of Canada's Metropolitan Outlook, Edmonton and Calgary will have the worst-performing economies this year. It’s not all bad news of course. With the price of oil expected to increase in the second half of this year, both cities are expected to see economic growth resume in 2016. But it will be a far cry from the growth rates of the 2010-14 period, when on average, Edmonton grew by 6 per cent and Calgary by more than 4 per cent annually. So what are the factors that have caused this dramatic shift? And how will change affect your business in the year ahead? Such a dramatic reversal calls for expert analysis, of the kind that only The Conference Board of Canada can provide. Join Alan Arcand, Associate Director of our Centre for Municipal Studies, for a 60-minute session that will cover economic indicators including: oil prices, real GDP growth, employment, housing market, population growth, migration flows, personal income, and retail spending. This webinar is a must for anyone who does business in Alberta's two large cities, including: business planners and strategists, economists, controllers, financial forecasters and business analysts, market and industry analysts, marketing and sales professionals, and policymakers.
