Marcel Côté Award

Marcel Côté was a boundless visionary, a bridge-builder and a tireless advocate for good public policy. It’s in his honour that the Public Policy Forum created the annual Marcel Côté Award for Leadership in Public Policy. The Forum, in partnership with the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal and the Young Chamber of Commerce of Montreal, presented the first award on May 20, 2015.

This award is presented to Quebecers who demonstrate extraordinary leadership qualities and help improve public policy and public discourse at the municipal, provincial, national and/or international levels.

Marcel Côté was an economist and founding partner of SECOR Inc., which he helped build into Canada’s largest independent management consulting firm. His advice was sought by corporations, community and cultural organizations, as well as senior-level governments in our country.
