Data for the vacation cheques – Summer 2016

In June 2016, the CCQ sent more than 147,000 vacation cheques to construction workers in Québec. A total of $364 million was distributed.

This was a 3% drop in the total value of cheques compared to the amounts paid out in the summer of 2015; it is explained mainly by the slowdown in the construction industry.
