Skills / Expertise
For Québec to become a green economy, the skills are just as vital as the right tools and equipment. Québec has a critical mass of consulting engineers and a quality education system. However, Québec could be faced with a shortage in skilled labour in the near future. It is therefore essential to ensure that the training corresponds to the needs of the sector. In the context of a greener economy, new trades will occupy an important place, and this is why the main agents in the economy have to be made aware of this challenge.
