Quebec Consulting Engineering: What the Future Holds
MONTREAL, Feb. 22, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Media representatives are invited to attend the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal's Allstream Morning Trends breakfast meeting on Thursday, February 23 at 7:30 am, at which Ms. Johanne Desrochers, President and CEO of the AICQ, will be speaking.
Since taking part in the major projects of the 1960s and 70s, the consulting engineering sector has maintained strong growth, becoming one of Quebec's economic and social pillars. Today, Quebec's engineering firms possess world-class know-how in a number of sectors. Faced with numerous issues, including international competition, and major challenges, such as ageing infrastructures, a shortage of skilled labour, and global consolidation, Quebec consulting engineering is staying the course with the development of new expertise and growth, at home and on international markets.
