Citation

Montréal est la métropole nord-américaine qui a connu la croissance la plus forte en matière d’investissements étrangers l’an dernier, mais les projets qu’elle attire créent moins d’emplois qu’ailleurs.

La région montréalaise est celle qui a le plus progressé en Amérique du Nord dans le classement annuel de l’investissement direct étranger de la firme Wavteq, associée au journal anglais Financial Times.

Montréal occupe également la première place nord-américaine pour ce qui est de la valeur des investissements en immobilisations provenant d’entreprises étrangères en proportion de la taille de son économie, devant Toronto et New York. À l’échelle mondiale, la ville occupe le 17e rang, derrière des poids lourds comme Singapour, Bangalore, Hong Kong et Londres.

Selon Montréal International, les investissements étrangers en immobilisations ont plus que doublé en 2017 pour atteindre 878 millions $.

Loin au classement global

Au palmarès cumulatif, qui prend aussi en compte le nombre de projets et les emplois créés, Montréal fait toutefois moins bonne figure, étant recalée au 32e rang mondial.

La métropole québécoise est pénalisée par le nombre relativement peu élevé d’emplois que créent les projets d’investissements étrangers par rapport à sa population. Trente-trois villes réussissent mieux qu’elle à cet égard, dont Bucarest, Dublin, Barcelone, Paris et Toronto.

Emplois de qualité

«Nous n’avons pas d’objectif spécifique lié au volume d’emplois créés. Nous avons plutôt un critère qui mesure la qualité des emplois créés en fonction de leur salaire moyen», reconnaît Christian Bernard, économiste en chef de l’organisme Montréal International.

«Il faut regarder beaucoup plus la qualité des emplois créés plutôt que leur nombre, compte tenu de notre situation démographique et du fait que notre taux de chômage a atteint un creux historique au cours des derniers mois», soutient-il.

Montréal International souligne néanmoins que les projets étrangers annoncés l’an dernier doivent créer 5233 emplois, soit 62 % de plus qu’en 2016.

Les cinq plus importants investissements étrangers

1.IKEA, Suède (centre de distribution, Beauharnois) : 160 millions $

2.Siemens, Allemagne (turbines à gaz, Dorval) : 133 millions $

3.Double Negative, Royaume-Uni (effets visuels, Montréal) : n/d

4.Delmar, Italie (pharmaceutique, Lachine) : 45 millions $

5.Bridor, France (boulangerie, Boucherville) : 40 millions $

@YMQ So, Montréal's economy is doing well, but not keeping up with the rest of North America?

I really do enjoy seeing your arguments being disproven one by one. :P

Montreal is doing well, but so is the North America context. Continue to believe that Montreal is not keeping up with its peers on a relative basis - and Montreal's peers are Boston, Toronto, Austin, Seattle - not Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Baltimore.

Do yourself a favor - read the entire article.

I did. So? Wait I get it, its not "perfect news", therefore its not "good news". Geez, you must be fun at parties. Also, the important part is that it disproves your theories. Not only is our growth keeping up with the rest of the competition, its better. 

I guess doubling your external investments is bad news, right?

Rejoice Frank. Ikea put it a distribution centre valued at $150M.

Come talk to me when Montreal's GDP growth rivals Boston/Toronto/Chicago/Atlanta/Washington over a period of 5 years.

No thanks. You'll say our overall GDP is not as high as London's. Always something thats not good enough for you Mark. You remind me of my wife sometimes. :P

What's up with the random provocations in this thread?

 

Montreal's economy is definitely doing great, but it's still lagging compared to other international metropoles (metropolises?) of the same calibre. We need to make sure we'll still be doing well 5-10 years into the future in order to catch up. We can celebrate our current success while keeping in mind that we're still behind and need to improve more instead of resting on our laurels. The two are not mutually exclusive.

Well said! ? Oui, les choses vont bien à Montréal depuis 2 ans, mais nous partons de loins derrière. Ça va prendre une autre décennie comme comme les deux dernières années pour rattraper les villes qui performent le mieux. (Seattle, Toronto, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta etc...)

I don't think he's a denyer, but he doesn't have rose coloured glasses like too many people in Québec have a tendency of having.  Many feel like he's always complaining, even when things are going RELATIVELY well,  but I think he sets the bar higher than most people here.

He's not a denyer rather he's simply calling out that despite positive economic news these last years we don't yet rival cities we compete with.  And Habsfan is right too many people have rose colored glasses.  We're on an upswing let's hope we continue the trend for the foreseeable future.
