Our mission

Inform and enter into dialogue with the public in order to further increase the transparency of the mining industry and demonstrate its contribution to the sustainable development of Quebec.

The MinesQC.com initiative

MinesQC.com is an online space for questions and answers, information and conversations about the Quebec mining industry. It is an initiative of Minalliance. Each citizen who has questions or opinions on the social, environmental and economic aspects of the Quebec mining industry is invited to express them on the platform. Questions and comments will be forwarded to industry representatives, researchers and independent experts to provide you with answers as soon as possible. These answers will be shared publicly through the MinesQC.com platform.

We hope that this space for information, open discussions and transparency becomes the reference point for all citizens wishing to be informed about the Quebec mining industry.

Passionate, I thrive on new challenges and new experiences. Having worked in various sectors, especially in non-profit organizations (NPOs) or municipal and corporate sectors, I have developed expertise in environment and management of NPOs. As President and CEO of the Quebec Mining Association, I am pleased to put my experience to work for the benefit of our members.

Father of a boy, I'm looking forward to the day he’ll lace up his first pair of skates, as I did before him. I am the Director of Strategy, Projects and Public Affairs Officer of Glencore Raglan Mine. I gained my professional experience in mining operations, business development, project management and communications and public affairs in North America, Africa and Australia.
