Department welcomes new Deputy Minister

The department welcomes a new Deputy Minister, de Montigny Marchand, Q.C., who returns to DOC after a 10-year absence. He replaces Robert Rabinovitch, who moved to Secretary of State.

 

Born in St-Jérôme, Quebec, Mr. Marchand received a BA from the Collège de Ste-Thérèse, an LL.L degree from the University of Montreal and an MS in Communications from Boston University's School of Communications. Admitted to the Quebec Bar in 1960, he practised law with the Montreal firm Desjardins, Ducharme, Choquette et Desjardins et Associés.

 

Mr. Marchand comes to us from Exter­nal Affairs, where he was Deputy Minister, Political Affairs. He also served that department as Deputy Minister (Foreign Policy) and Associate Under­Secretary of State. Prior to that, he was Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet (Opera­tions) in the Privy Council Office (PCO), and in 1979-80 was in Paris on special assignment to Western Europe for the PCO.

 

During his previous years with the DOC (1969-74), Mr. Marchand was Director of Research and Co-secretary of the Telecommission, Assistant Deputy Minister (Operations) and Senior Assis­tant Deputy Minister. He headed Cana­dian delegations to various international conferences such as the Third Plenary Session of Intelsat and the World Ad­ministrative Radio Conference on Space Communications in 1971; and the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Sessions of the United Nations Working Group on Direct Broadcasting by Satellite in 1972, 1973 and 1974. He also was the Canadian observer to the First CITEL Conference in 1972.

 

Mr. Marchand has co-ordinated and animated an adult education lecture series, and participated in many con­ferences, seminars and colloquiums on education and the development of human resources.

 

He has served on the executive and as a Member of the Board of numerous organizations, including the Canadian Overseas Telecommunications Corpora­tion, the National Film Board and l'Institut canadien des Affaires publiques (ICAP).

 

Mr. Marchand's wide experience and his knowledge of the department will cer­tainly benefit DOC as he accepts the challenge as our new Deputy Minister.
