Context

The Construction sector is one of Quebec’s economic powerhouses, responsible for more than 500,000 jobs and representing over 12% of the province’s GDP. It also offers high added value, contributing to Quebecers’ quality of life and enhancing our business environment through the construction of new and more efficient buildings and infrastructure across the province. Historically, this sector has always played an important role in public economic stimulus strategies. This remains true today, given the government’s clear priorities to fast-track major construction and infrastructure projects. The current situation presents opportunities to find new solutions for workforce challenges, to develop advanced technologies that will help our businesses stand out, and to re-examine the way builders do business to improve their efficiency.
