College Council approved the appointment to Council of Jacques Tremblay, representing members from the French-language public boards - elementary and secondary. Tremblay, who teaches French, computer science and technology with the Conseil des écoles publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario, responded to the Nomination Committee's call for expressions of interest to replace Bernard Adam. Adam had been acclaimed in the last Council election and resigned from Council after retiring from teaching last June.
In addition to a 13-year teaching career - 11 years in Ontario - Tremblay spent 16 years in business and management, including owning a health services firm. In recent years he has been heavily involved in course writing, curriculum implementation and leadership training. He has an MA in French studies from Queen's University and a BEd in French studies from Université du Québec.
