Hervé Deschenes très petit

It is with great pleasure that we announce Mr. Hervé Deschênes as the fourth chairman of the Cree-Québec Forestry Board.

On August 17, 2016, after consultation with the Cree nation, the Québec government Cabinet appointed Mr. Deschênes to replace Mr. Gilbert Paillé who passed away while in office last December.

Mr. Deschênes was given a three-year mandate.

Mr. Deschênes is a forest engineer. He graduated in business administration and has extensive experience in the forestry sector. During his career he has worked in various fields of forestry including industry, education, health and safety at work, forestry and business development, at the regional, national and international levels.
