Several CIRANO Researchers participated in the Symposium on Public Finances in Quebec organized by Luc Godbout, Holder of the Chaire en fiscalité et finances publiques, CIRANO Researcher and Fellow. The Prime Minister of Quebec and the Minister of Finance honoured us with their presence at the opening of the symposium.
