Document Highlights

  • The economy will add almost 40,000 jobs in the final quarter of the year.
  • Meeting future labour demand will not be easily achieved given a low unemployment rate and weak labour force growth.
  • High inflation and labour shortages will create a drag on investment in machinery and equipment.
  • Quebec’s trade balance will improve over the forecast period, supported by growth in aerospace products and energy exports.
