Sylvain Bouchard's community involvement

In school, Sylvain Bouchard made his mark in the student movement, chairing the meetings and elections of Confédération des associations d'étudiants et d'étudiantes de l'Université Laval (CADEUL) and a number of other student associations, and thereby becoming an authority in the matter. Since he began practicing law, Mr. Bouchard has been involved in the regional business community. He is president of Groupe ressources humaines du Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, a labour-management organization that seeks to promote sound human resource management practices and holds an annual symposium that attracts nearly 300 people. Mr. Bouchard has also served as president of Chambre de commerce de Jonquière and Conférence des chambres de commerce du Saguenay. He was active for a number of years on the fundraising committee of the local chapter of the Canadian Cancer Society and was honorary president of the 2010 Relay for Life in Saguenay.
