MONTRÉAL, Oct. 8, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - In the Employers Council's press release accompanying the release of the 2015 Report Cards on Quebec and Canadian Prosperity, which was sent at 10 a.m. today, the following paragraph should read:
"Overall, based on all of the indicators analyzed, we note the province of Quebec systematically received a grade of "C" from 2010 to 2015, and that is a worrisome stagnation," remarked Norma Kozhaya, the Vice-President of Research and Chief Economist of the Employers Council. "This grade accounts for the fact Quebec ranks in the third quartile (23rd out of 38 countries and provinces considered) in terms of GDP per capita, with $36,168, which is below the OECD average of $39,000 and far behind the Canadian average of $44,000."
The Employers Council's 2015 Report Cards on Quebec and Canadian Prosperity can be found on its web site: www.cpq.qc.ca.
The Quebec Employers Council brings together many of Québec's largest companies and the vast majority of sector-based employers' groups, making it Québec's sole employer federation. It represents directly and indirectly more than 70,000 employers of all sizes in both the private and public sectors, with operations in Quebec.
