The formation of the Task Force on Business Investment was announced by the Québec minister of Finance on October 30, 2007. The Task Force released its report on March 13, 2008.
MEMBERS OF THE TASK FORCE
The Task Force was chaired by Pierre Fortin, professor at the Université du Québec à Montréal. Mr. Fortin was assisted by Andrée Corriveau, former president and CEO of the Centre Financier International de Montréal, and Jean Boivin, associate professor at the École des Hautes Études Commerciales.
The Task Force had to help the government identify ways to increase investment to sustain economic growth. It was mandated to:
- present the main observations regarding business investment performance in Québec compared to the other provinces and the best-performing countries;
- identify, in the current Québec context, the most significant levers to foster economic growth;
- submit proposals to the government on what actions and means should be taken to encourage, in particular, greater business investment to stimulate economic growth.
