The Ville de Carleton-sur-Mer commissioned CIRADD to produce an economic impact survey of the municipal wharf redevelopment project. To do this, the organization teamed up with Marc Simard, an economist and consultant. The survey was conducted in the summer of 2015 with tourists visiting the municipality and with companies related to the tourism sector.
Based on the data collected, the analysis deals with the characteristics of Carleton-sur-Mer’s tourism, estimated tourism expenditures, tourism expenditures and economic spinoffs and, finally, the economic profile of businesses and the opportunity cost associated with the wharf redevelopment project. The survey enabled conclusions to be drawn on the potential economic benefits of the project and the costs of its non-realization.
