In Memory of Claude Montmarquette
tw Dear colleagues, partners and collaborators, It is with deep sadness that we have learned the passing of our dear colleague Claude Montmarquette on Wednesday, September 8, 2021. Quebec loses today a great economist. Claude Montmarquette was President and CEO of CIRANO from 2009 to 2016. With his colleagues and friends Robert Lacroix and Marcel Boyer, he was one of the great builders of CIRANO. Claude was always a very active CIRANO researcher and Fellow. In recent years, he has been involved in projects that were close to his heart, notably the improvement of economic and financial literacy among Quebecers, public health, and education and school dropout. His passing will leave a great void for each of us and for Quebec. We will continue to value his accomplishments and keep his intellectual legacy alive. We will keep the memory of a great man... who had great humanistic values. Our most sincere thoughts are with his family and friends. Nathalie de Marcellis-Warin, President and CEO of CIRANO
