Michel Nadeau has demonstrated “an outstanding commitment to Quebec, the Quebec economy, Quebec corporations, and Quebec’s institutions,” declared Yvan Allaire, IGOPP Chairman Emeritus.

Michel Nadeau has also been Vice President of the Quebec Recruitment and Placement Fund (CDPQ) for 18 years. In the pages of “Les Affaires,” journalist Suzanne Dancero said he “pissed off many Bay Street-goers who called him ‘The Godfather’.”

For his part, President and CEO of Quebec, Pierre-Carl Pillado, emphasized that “if Videotron and many other companies in Quebec remain in Quebec’s hands, Quebec is indebted to Michel Nadeau, who works to finance and inspire entrepreneurs.”
