Marc Parent has been spearheading Commissionaires du Québec since August 2015, right after a successful career with the Montreal Police Service (SPVM) spanning more than 31 years, including five years as its director.
It was first and foremost the social mission and the values embodied by the Commissionaires du Québec that attracted Mr. Parent: respect, loyalty and commitment.
As a leader, Mr. Parent has always taken a personal approach with his employees in his down-to-earth manner. He never hesitates to give a part of his time attending to the needs of his employees, helping them better accomplish their mission. It is his duty to build good relationships with his colleagues and to develop a sense of belonging and pride in the organization.
For him, it is important that employees feel they can trust management and have the opportunity to make a real contribution to the success of the organization, fueling it with fresh ideas and creativity.
The Canadian Corps of Commissionaires was created in 1925, almost 100 years ago, with the goal of allowing returning soldiers to find a professional path to meet their professional and financial needs.
During major events such as the G7 Summit, it is important that special forces and specialized units such as police forces and intelligence services devote themselves entirely to their primary tasks. That’s why organizations like the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires are given the responsability to ensure peace and order on site.
During G7 2018, the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires were responsible for ensuring accessibility to all three sites:
- Quebec, where were gathered more than 1,200 international journalists
- La Malbaie, where the meeting of the great leaders took place
- Bagotville, where CCC welcomed the arrival by air of international delegations
Commissionnaires du Québec is proud to have contributed to the success of this important event.
