Quebec's business scene has been affected by the disappearance of many chains over the last few years. Others reduced their presence by closing lower performing stores. This phenomenon was exacerbated by the pandemic, particularly in clothing, sporting goods, hobby supply, music supply and book retailers. Growth in Quebec's retail and wholesale trade is expected to remain weak in the medium term. The province's demographic dynamic is among the weakest in Canada. The aging population creates different consumer habits owing to lower incomes and changing needs as individuals age. Furthermore, the maintenance of telework will continue to disrupt the dynamic in some industries, particularly in ready-to-wear clothing, cosmetics and health and personal care products, making it more difficult to recover lost jobs and create new jobs. Lastly, e-commerce will continue to gain ground, thereby reducing in-store traffic and disadvantaging a large proportion of Quebec businesses that still lag behind with respect to online transactions.
