Professional, scientific and technical services then and now

October 1, 2016
François Dupuis, Vice-President and Chief Economist • Joëlle Noreau, Senior Economist

Employment in professional, scientific and technical services has boomed in the last few decades. Growth in this sector has been much faster than the Quebec average, all sectors combined. The increase in the number of workers comes, in particular, because the nature of economic activities has become more complex. At the same time, Quebec labour has responded to employers’ call. The outlook for professional, scientific and technical services is fairly good, although hiring will not match the pace seen in the last few years.
