  • However, the economic context, buying habits, e-commerce and, more generally, population growth will curb job growth for these professionals in the medium and long term.
  • Inflation and rising interest rates, which are causing households to lose purchasing power, could lead to reduced consumption.
  • Continued telework will further change the dynamics of some industries, particularly for fashion, cosmetics, and health and personal care products, where the decreased demand for these products may continue on a more permanent basis.
  • The rise in e-commerce is reducing in-store traffic, which could disadvantage a large percentage of Quebec businesses that are still lagging behind in online transactions.
