The objective of this survey is to collect data on public administration capital expenditures in Québec and to break them down by industry, type of assets or administrative region.
In order to avoid the duplication of surveys, the Institut de la statistique du Québec has entered into an information-sharing agreement with Statistics Canada. Data from the Survey on Investment Projects in Québec are transmitted to Statistics Canada, which integrates them into the Annual Capital Expenditures Survey (CAPEX).
Data for a reference year cover the 12-month fiscal year, which may end between April 1 of the reference year and March 31 of the following year.
