Abstract

Le present document vise a determiner dans quelle mesure les etablissements du secteur canadien de la fabrication font face a des penuries de main'd'oeuvre qualifiee et, le cas echeant, si ces penuries semblent nuire a l'adoption des technologies de pointe. Les usines qui adoptent des technologies de pointe declarent des penuries, particulierement chez les professionnels, comme les specialistes des sciences et les ingenieurs, et chez les specialistes techniques. Les problemes qu'entrainent ces penuries sur le marche du travail dependent pour une large part des solutions adoptees par les etablissements qui y font face. Le present document demontre que les penuries de main-d'oeuvre qualifiee ne semblent pas nuire a l'adoption des technologies, etant donne que les etablissements qui declarent des penuries sont aussi ceux qui sont les plus avances au niveau technologique. Meme s'ils font face a des besoins plus grands de main-d'oeuvre qualifiee, ils semblent etre en mesure de resoudre les penuries qui se posent.
