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.
