Our activities are governed by three bodies: the Board of Directors, the Executive Committee and the executive teams of our subsidiaries. These bodies are made up of experienced, international calibre managers. They act with integrity and rigour to implement strategies and action plans that generate the returns our clients need while contributing to Québec’s economic development.
