Belleau Lapointe, Main Sponsor of the Option consommateurs 2018 Fundraising Evening

Belleau Lapointe is proud to have partnered with Option consommateurs as the main sponsor of its 2018 Fundraising Evening. This major event organized under the theme Un chef à l’érable (A Maple-Flavoured Chef) took the guests away to an urban sugar shack within the folklore of Québec’s gastronomic traditions.

Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Option consommateurs took this opportunity to recognize the contribution of two influential people active in the field of access to justice and of the defense of consumers’ rights. Jacques St Amant, one of the 12 cofounders of Option consommateurs, received the Protection des consommateurs award.  Fellow at the UQÀM Department of Legal Sciences, he has distinguished himself by his many research projects in consumer law, and particularly those regarding financial services and personal information protection. He also played a great advisory role with many consumer associations and government institutions.

Our colleague Daniel Belleau had the honor of presenting the Accès à la justice award to Pierre Noreau, professor at the Centre de recherche en droit public of the Université de Montréal, for his engagement in the community and his role in creating and managing a major research consortium on the access to law and justice. Congratulations to all.

Belleau Lapointe is happy to be a partner of this great evening and to support Option consommateurs in defending consumers’ rights.
