Economic Note explaining the impact of logging on the future of our forests and the survival of the woodland caribou

Environmental groups claim that logging is jeopardizing the future of our forests as well as the survival of the species that live in them. Is this an accurate picture of the reality of forestry in Quebec? The aggregate data do not show that our forests are in decline. On the contrary, forest cover has increased slightly between the first forest inventory in 1979 and the most recent one in 2002.

Economic Note evaluating the implicit subsidies to wind power, biomass and community power plants

Invoking “obvious economic reasons,” i.e., annual savings of $24 million, the Quebec government cancelled six small hydroelectric power projects this past February. In April, however, it announced new supply contracts for wind power, a sector that is already guaranteed to receive an implicit subsidy of $695 million a year until 2020. For Youri Chassin, economist at the MEI and the author of this Economic Note, we have an urgent need for rational decisions based on our actual energy requirements and not on artificial support of various energy sectors.

Economic Note describing energy production and consumption in Quebec

Questions about energy are currently in the news on an almost daily basis in the province of Quebec. In addition, the Quebec government intends to adopt a new law on hydrocarbons in the near future, and next year, a new energy policy. In order to be able to discuss these topics seriously, it is useful to have a global picture of Quebec's energy reality. This Economic Note therefore provides a general overview of Quebec's energy consumption and production. It also highlights some of the energy challenges that the province will face in the years to come.

MEI in the Media

Indignation over proposed Champlain Bridge toll is unwarranted
Op-ed by Ian Irvine, professor of economics at Concordia University and associate researcher at the MEI, published on September 23 in The Gazette.

Three Myths about the Canadian Wireless Sector
Interview with Paul Beaudry, Associate Researcher at the Montreal Economic Institute, broadcast on September 30, 2014, on BNN GO.

Environmentalist groups claim that harvesting the forest jeopardizes its future and harms the animal species that live there. As part of our research program on Quebec's forests, the Vice President of the MEI, Jasmin Guénette, visited an outfitter to see how wildlife activities coexist with logging activities. The short documentary provides a realistic picture of the Quebec forest narrated by those who make their living from it.
