Luc Fortin is the new MNA of the electoral division of Sherbrooke since April 7, 2014.
Passionate about politics from a young age, Luc earned a Masters of Political Science from Université de Montréal and made his debut on Quebec’s Parliament Hill in 2006. He served as political advisor to the Minister responsible for Canadian Intergovernmental Affairs and Reform of Democratic Institutions in Quebec before becoming, a few months later, his press secretary. In 2009, he held the same position with the Quebec Minister of Immigration and Cultural Communities before his April 2010 appointment as Communications Advisor to Quebec Premier Jean Charest. In the fall of 2012, Luc decided to leverage his entrepreneurial spirit by founding a public relations company, now a well-established firm.
Actively involved in public affairs, Luc is now getting into politics to give the Sherbrooke community a strong voice in the National Assembly of Quebec. Young and dynamic, he intends to put his whole heart and all his energy into ensuring that Sherbrooke can successfully take on the challenges it faces, particularly its economy. According to him, introducing more regional economic development initiatives and increasing the support of local entrepreneurship is the best way to create better jobs in Sherbrooke. In addition, he believes that creating ironclad career opportunities may attract young people to the region, helping raise the community’s profile through their talent.
Luc is married to Emilie Rouleau and the couple have three children.
