2018 Speaker

Pierre Moreau, Quebec’s Minister of Energy and Natural Resources


Before being elected for the first time in 2003, Pierre Moreau was a lawyer specializing in the field of municipal law for over 20 years.  As well as being an elected member of Quebec’s National Assembly for over more than 10 years, Minister Moreau has held numerous offices:  Chief Government Whip, Minister responsible for Intergovernmental Affairs, Minister of Transport, Minister of Municipal Affairs, Acting Minister of Public Security, Minister of Education, Minister for Finance and President of the Treasury Board. On October 11th 2017, he became, Quebec’s 28th Minister of Energy and Natural Resources.

 Forests are one of Quebec’s most important natural resources. For this reason, the Quebec Government has chosen to ensure their sustainability and foster their contribution to the socio-economic development of the province. Quebecers can be proud to have one of the best forest regimes in the world, along with the expertise needed to manage it in a sustainable way.

Français - Avant d’être élu pour la première fois en 2003, Pierre Moreau a été avocat spécialisé en droit municipal pour plus de 20 ans. En plus d’être un membre élu de l’Assemblée nationale du Québec depuis plus de 10 ans, le ministre Moreau a occupé plusieurs fonctions au sein de l’état : whip en chef du gouvernement, ministre responsable des Affaires intergouvernementales, ministre des Transports, ministre des Affaires municipales, ministre de la Sécurité publique suppléant, ministre de l’Éducation, ministre délégué aux Finances et président du Conseil du trésor. Depuis le 11 octobre 2017, il occupe la fonction de ministre de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles.

 Les forêts font partie des plus grandes richesses naturelles du Québec. C’est pourquoi le Gouvernement du Québec a fait le choix d’en assurer la pérennité et de favoriser leur contribution au développement socioéconomique de l’ensemble de son territoire. Les Québécois peuvent être très fiers de pouvoir compter sur l’un des meilleurs régimes forestiers au monde ainsi que sur une expertise solide et diversifiée, qui en assurent une exploitation durable.
