Pierre-Michel Auger



Député et président de la Commission de l'aménagement du territoire

Born in Shawinigan on January 11, 1963, he is the father of four children and son of Paul Auger, a plant operator. He also is the former MNA (2007-08) for Champlain riding.

He received a diploma at the Collège des administrateurs de sociétés of  l’Université Laval, and then went on to earn a B.A|. in Business Administration at  l’Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, before following a Master’s course in safety and industrial hygiene at UQTR.

At the professional level, he launched his business career in the 1990s as co-founder and owner of Deneco, a snow-clearing company, as well as heading l’Avant-scène, a show staging company. These two businesses allowed him to pursue another course, that of a consultant in business start-ups, from 1994-97.

At this point he re-oriented his career toward teaching. At Collège Laflèche de Trois-Rivières from 1998 through 2007, he was successively assistant co-ordinator in Hotel and Tourism, co-ordinator and Professor in Tourism techniques, co-ordinator and Professor in techniques of Hotel Management and interim co-ordinator in Continuing Education. Over the same period of time, he held several other positions including Administrator of the Board of Collège Laflèche; Administrator at the co-ordinating office at the pre-school centre, Les petits collégiens de Trois-Rivières, and with the Parc de la rivière Gentilly;  and served as a committee member on the committee on work conditions for college lecturers; member of the Association des hôteliers du Québec; and member of the l’Association des restaurateurs du Québec via Collège Laflèche.

Pierre-Michel Auger made the leap into politics in 2007 through 2008 as a member of the ADQ, before joining the ranks of the Quebec Liberal Party. He served as Vice-President of Customer Relations and Operations of the Régie du bâtiment du Québec from 2009 to 2013. He is elected deputy of Champlain on the 7th of April 2014.
