Perception des risques au Québec – Baromètre CIRANO 2012

Certain public decisions, major projects or social issues in Quebec may give rise to concerns or fears. Whether we are talking about undertaking the refurbishment of the Gentilly-2 nuclear power plant, developing the shale gas industry, building a new bridge, retirement income, obesity, access to health services, some of these projects or issues are of concern to the people of Quebec.

This book presents the results of an unpublished survey of a representative sample of the Quebec population. The CIRANO 2012 Barometer provides answers to the questions asked by all major project managers:
- What is on the minds of Quebeckers today?
- What are the projects and issues perceived as the most risky?
- What is the level of trust placed by the population in the government for its management of 30 specific projects and issues?
- What are the sources of information most used by the population?
- How would the population react to the announcement, for example, of the construction of a new nuclear power plant?

This book is particularly aimed at managers of major projects, political decision-makers and all citizens.
