Resolution #82: The Abolition of the Workforce Training Tax (Official French version)

The Québec government is paternalistic towards business by levying a 1% of a company's payroll if it can't prove that it has spent at least that amount towards training its workforce. In a market economy such as Québec, employers should determine the resources allocated towards training their staff, as they do for all their other production costs. If their workforce is not sufficiently trained. They will suffer the consequences through a loss of customers or by not remaining competitive. The government doesn't need to intervene.

A CPQ government will abolish the tax dedicated to the training of the workforce at day 1.
