The pandemic has brought its share of challenges and adjustments for Québec businesses. This analysis illustrates their situation in March 2020. Among other things, it looks at:
Data for Québec come from the Canadian Survey on Business Conditions (CSBC), March 2020, conducted from April 3 to 24, 2020, by Statistics Canada in collaboration with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

This makes the results unrepresentative of the entire business population.
