COVID-19 – CIRANO Researchers are mobilized to respond to the call launched by Quebec's Minister of Finance


Quebec Minister of Finance Eric Girard has issued a call to the academic economists community to propose, through research and other means, actions to accelerate the economic recovery, ensure sustainable economic growth, revitalize Quebec's regions and reduce the budget deficit that will result from the COVID-19 pandemic, while maintaining adequate funding for health and education. This invitation was extended to all economics departments in Quebec universities and to research groups.


CIRANO Researchers are mobilized to respond to this call. This is in line with the work of the special COVID-19 expert committee set up at CIRANO at the beginning of the crisis.
