Creation of a working group
QUÉBEC CITY, February 9 2018 – The Government of Quebec is establishing a working group on the sharing economy to identify the best practices to adopt to make Quebec a sharing economy leader on the international scene.
Dominique Anglade, Deputy Premier, Minister of Economy, Science and Innovation and Minister responsible for the Digital Strategy also announced today that the task force is ready to begin work.
In addition to its Chair, Guillaume Lavoie , who teaches a specialized course in the sharing economy and public policy at the École nationale d’administration publique (ENAP), the group will have two members: Christine Fréchette, President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of Montreal East, and Nolywé Delannon, Assistant Professor in Corporate Social Responsibility at the Faculty of Business Administration at Université Laval.
The sharing economy is set to grow rapidly over the next few years. It already has a measurable impact on the way we produce, consume, fund and learn. By taking the lead to identify the most effective way to harmoniously integrate this type of economy, we are outlining a new, avant-garde Quebec that places innovation at the heart of its activities. The Quebec economy is known to be in constant transformation and, once again, we intend to be equal to our reputation for excellence!
– Dominique Anglade, Deputy Premier, Minister of Economy, Science and Innovation and Minister responsible for the Digital Strategy
Around the world, the emergence of collaborative practices is profoundly transforming economies and societies, and is creating extraordinary challenges for government bodies in their approach to regulation. We must succeed in creating a framework that reconciles innovation, fairness and the common good. With my deep desire to continue to serve, I agreed to chair this working group with great enthusiasm, because its mandate goes hand in glove with my commitment to modernize and strengthen our public policy.
– Guillaume Lavoie, lecturer at the ENAP and Chair of the working group on the sharing economy
I am delighted to take part in this initiative on the sharing economy, a new reality that calls for reflection and appeals to our creativity. Novel ways to organize economic activities have emerged in recent years. As a society, we must guide these developments, since they will become more present as we innovate technologically. At the same time, it will also be important to maintain a regulatory framework that ensures equity between new stakeholders in the sharing economy and those in the so-called traditional economy.
– Christine Fréchette, – President of the Chamber of Commerce of Montreal East and member of the working group on the sharing economy
The sharing economy is at the heart of major changes that are transforming the relationship between businesses, governments and civil society. It requires an in-depth reflection on our choices as a society. The government has a central role to play in overseeing these changes, especially to protect the most vulnerable. As a researcher focused on corporate social responsibility, I am excited about the prospect of reflecting on the best ways to stimulate innovation in a fair and inclusive environment.
– Nolywé Delannon, Assistant Professor of Corporate Social Responsibility at the Faculty of Business Administration at Université Laval and a member of the working group on the sharing economy
– Initiatives in the sharing economy are generally highly innovative business models, and can be recognized by several aspects:
– They are based on horizontal rather than vertical organization, or are decentralized;
– They enable the sharing of goods and knowledge;
– They link individuals, whether through platforms or other means.
– The establishment of this working group is the result of a mandate given by the Premier, Philippe Couillard, to the Deputy Premier, Minister of Economy, Science and Innovation and Minister responsible for the Digital Strategy, in order to provide a better framework for sharing economy initiatives in Quebec.
– The group will hold ongoing consultations, particularly with experts and individuals from different fields, such as academia, social organizations, innovation, business, the environment, transport, real estate and finance. A broad public online consultation will also be held mainly during March. The group’s final report is expected in May 2018.
– In Quebec’s Digital Strategy, the creation of this group is mentioned as part of an effort to modernize and strengthen our public policy, which relates to the digital transformation of our society.
– In its Tax Fairness Action Plan , published in November last year, the government reiterated its approach to the sharing economy, which is to ensure that initiatives associated with the sharing economy are governed by regulations and legislation that keep innovation, security and fairness in balance.
