The Government of Quebec minister in charge of labour and employment, Jean Boulet, has announced $900K in funding for labour market research through the Université du Québec à Montréal’s École des sciences de la gestion. The three-year funding agreement with the Chaire en macroéconomie et prévisions will support the creation of a research group that will conduct studies on issues related to the labour market, such as recruitment needs, available workers, and labour scarcity. Boulet explained that the project is particularly pertinent as QC is currently facing a labour shortage. The project will be led by ESG Professor Dr Étienne Lalé.
