Economic Note illustrating how a substantial minimum wage hike would be particularly harmful in rural regions

A strike of fast food restaurant employees in New York in 2012 gave birth to a movement demanding a substantial increase of the minimum wage in the United States, calling for it to rise to $15 an hour. Since then, several cities and states have established timelines for raising the minimum wage to that symbolic threshold. In Quebec, the major labour unions have taken up the charge, along with the symbolic $15 target.

Economic Note contrasting the fundamentally different approaches of companies and governments when it comes to the use of personal information

In the debate over the collection, sharing, and use of personal information, there exists a widespread prejudice according to which companies are less respectful of citizens’ privacy than governments are. Yet companies universally operate by means of mutual consent, whereas governments very rarely ask those concerned for permission to access their information.

The tendency toward centralization has undermined the competitiveness of the forestry sector.

31 October 2016October 31, 2016
Research Paper showing how the tendency toward centralization, which has characterized forest regime reforms for decades, has undermined the competitiveness of the sector

Over time, the Quebec government has modified, on several occasions, the forest regime that governs the activities of the forestry industry. This Research Paper reviews the history of the forest concessions regime, the TSFMA regime, and the main events that influenced the new 2013 forest regime. It also proposes reforms inspired by the positive aspects of the former regimes and of practices that prevail elsewhere.

Plain packaging and the food sector.

3 October 2016October 3, 2016
Research Paper providing an overview of the history and current state of tobacco policy in Canada, with a focus on the debate over plain packaging

In Canada, tobacco is one of the most regulated and controlled industries, and smoking, because it is hazardous to one’s health, is one of the most heavily regulated behaviours. It thus provides a good example of how far risky behaviour is being regulated and taxed in Canada. The case of tobacco may also hint at how government might next regulate and tax other industries like alcohol, fast food, and sugary beverages.
