2017 Election


Candidate | District 15 - Lac-Beauchamp

Who is
Aurèle Desjardins?

Graduate in business administration at the Quebec University of Outaouais, I was born and always lived in the district.  From 1999 to 2009, I was the district’ municipal councilor, member of the executive branch, President of the long term financial planning and budget committee, as well as acting mayor.  I am very involved in the community, as member of many boards of directors (Campus 3, Chevaliers de Colomb, Loisirs, sportOutaouais, Re-Source Intégration). 


My function as Director General of the Papineau Iocal development center and of the CADO have given me the opportunity to develop an economic and community-based expertise.  I hope to serve you again and insure that the district will be well represented in the City Council.
