Abstract

La presente etude evalue l'effet des technologies de l'information et des communications (TIC) et de l'impartition a l'etranger sur la demande de travailleurs tres qualifies. Le creusement de l'ecart salarial entre les travailleurs tres qualifies et ceux qui le sont peu a ete l'une des caracteristiques determinante de l'economie canadienne au cours des deux dernieres decennies. Durant cette periode, les depenses consacrees aux technologies de l'information et des communications et a l'achat d'intrants intermediaires a l'etranger ont augmente spectaculairement. L'analyse de donnees sur 84 branches d'activite manufacturieres canadiennes couvrant la periode de 1981 a 1996 nous porte a conclure que les TIC ainsi que l'impartition a l'etranger jouent un role important dans la demande de competences.
