Exports play a very important role in the Québec economy. Thus, the analysis of their economic impact is essential. This study deals with this matter by laying the emphasis on the impact of Québec exports on employment, value added, and the content in imports of the exports. The economic impact of the increase in output of each of the major groups of the manufacturing sector is also examined.
This work is the fruit of the collaboration between the Institut de la statistique du Québec and the ministère du Développement économique de l'Innovation et de l'Exportation.
