Marie-Claude Arguin

Marie-Claude is from Lac-Mégantic, but since graduating from University in 1991, she has lived and worked in eight of the Canadian provinces and territories, in addition to the United States, Europe and South Asia.  By the age of 35, she had already traveled, both for personal and business purposes, to all continents with the exception of South America.  Marie-Claude has therefore experienced, already in her young adult life, several different cultures and economy systems.

Marie-Claude has 25 years of professional experience in management.  Although she focused extensively on all facets of projet management: human, material and financial resources, Marie-Claude has always worked under the umbrella of crisis management.  It is a specialty and a passion that she developed over the past two decades, and hopes will be beneficial to her latest mission: to contribute positively to the recovery and revitalization of Lac-Mégantic.

A graduate from the Military College of Canada in Kingston Ontario, with a Bachelor Degree in Mathematics and Physics, Marie-Claude later obtained a Master Degree in Strategic Leadership. It is therefore the marriage of her professional experience with her love for her youth’s community that has brought her back to Lac-Mégantic.  Supported by her husband and two boys, Marie-Claude decided, shortly after the events of July 6 2013, to go back to her roots and home to give a hand with the recovery efforts.
