Olivier has more than 15 years’ experience in the planning, design, and implementation of municipal infrastructures, particularly in the area of water.
With a wealth of experience in wastewater management and treatment, Olivier has headed and completed numerous engineering studies, providing the design and monitoring of projects of all sizes.
During his career, he suggested solutions to the City of Quebec for interconnecting various water distribution networks when consolidation of 13 municipalities was underway. He also proposed new water supply sources, as well as new drinking water procurement and treatment facilities, for Indigenous Canadian communities in the remote areas of Unamen Shipu and Pessamit. He has also participated actively in pilot and research projects which experimented with new runoff treatment alternatives at both Lac Saint-Augustin and Lac St-Charles, the main drinking water sources for the City of Quebec.
Aware of the challenges of infrastructure upgrading and urbanization within a sustainable development and natural environmental protection context, Olivier seeks to increase and accelerate knowledge-sharing among the various project disciplines. Doing so would facilitate integrated interventions whose scopes and benefits form a major part of a long-term perspective.
Olivier is committed to environmental protection and eager to harness his expertise in water management. As such, he is involved in his community, particularly within the Association for the Environmental Protection of Lac Nairne (APELN). Lac Nairne is Charlevoix County’s main recreational lake, with World Biosphere Reserve status. Olivier also supports various causes, including the Fondation Québec Jeunes, a youth foundation.
