Québec, August 14, 2020. – The results of the second edition of the Canadian Survey on Business Conditions provide insight into the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on Québec businesses as they resume operations. The Institut de la statistique du Québec is releasing today an analysis illustrating their situation in May 2020, which reveals that:
Data for Québec come from the Canadian Survey on Business Conditions (CSBC), May 2020, conducted from May 29 to July 3, 2020, by Statistics Canada in collaboration with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. In contrast with the first edition, which was based on a participatory approach and whose target population consisted of businesses with or without employees, the second edition is based on a probabilistic approach and focuses only on businesses with employees. Participation in the survey is voluntary and an electronic questionnaire was used. For Québec, the results presented above are based on the answers of 974 businesses.
The Institut de la statistique du Québec produces, analyzes and disseminates official, objective and quality statistical information on various aspects of Québec society. It is responsible for conducting all statistical surveys of general interest. The relevance of its work makes it a strategic ally for decision makers and all those wishing to learn more about Québec.
