    Contract sharing scheme: The Disciplinary Council of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec fines Yves Cadotte a total of $30,000

    vendredi 11 septembre 2020
    • Montreal, September 11, 2020 – The Disciplinary Council of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec (OIQ) rendered its decision on guilt and sanction in the case of Yves Cadotte, Eng., who has been ordered to pay three fines totaling $30,000.
    • Mr. Cadotte received these sanctions specifically for tolerating or participating in a contract sharing scheme for engineering services in the cities of Montreal and Longueuil. The offences occurred between 2002 and 2009, while Mr. Cadotte was vice-president of business development in a division of SNC-Lavalin.

      In its decision, the Disciplinary Council points out that Mr. Cadotte violated ethical obligations “that strike at the very heart of practicing his profession” and that his actions cast a shadow on the entire engineering profession.

      The full version of this decision is available on the Web site of the Société québécoise d’information juridique (SOQUIJ).

      As a reminder, the sanctions imposed by the Disciplinary Council are meant to protect the public by dissuading professionals from repeating offences and by setting an example for other members of the profession.
