The financial assistance to businesses and subsidies
Resolution #4: The financial assistance to businesses and subsidies (Official French version)
Québec pays billions of dollars a year in loans and deferrals and direct subsidies to businesses. The level of support in Québec, when measured per capita, is by some calculations more than four times that of Ontario. This aid and these grants give an unfair competitive advantage to those businesses that have the resources, knowledge and contacts needed to access them, encourage dependence, and create significant distortions the efficient operation of a market economy.
A CPQ government will not pick winning companies from those who want to offer goods and services in a market of healthy competition.
