Vice President & President Elect
Dominique Anglade is a transformative leader and operational executive with over 25 years of experience in the public and private sector.
After her election to the National assembly of Quebec (2015), Dominique was quickly appointed Minister of the Economy, Science and innovation (2016-2018) and later Depute Premier of Québec (2017-2018) with a mandate to steer Québec's economy towards significant changes in innovation. Drawing on her expertise in organizational change management at McKinsey & co (2005-2012), she drove transformative programs injecting more than a billion dollars into the automation, robotization and digitalization of Quebec companies and made historic investments to propel artificial intelligence in Quebec. On the strength of these achievements, Dominique subsequently became Leader of the Liberal Party of Québec (2020-2022) where she expanded the party platform to include green economy and social reforms.
Dominique’s ability to drive transformational economic change is grounded in her deep operational experience. Over her career she held a variety of leadership roles in manufacturing (Procter & Gamble 1996-2000), in technology (Nortel Networks 2000-2004), and as CEO of economic development corporation Montreal International (2013-2015). At the later, she guided the organization to secure over a record $1.6B in investment which more than doubled historical performance of the company.
With almost all of her roles being historical firsts for either women or people of color, Dominique deeply appreciates the need for societal transformation as well. She co-founded KANPE in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 earthquake to support the rebuilding of Haiti. KANPE has since helped over 12,000 Haitians to achieve economic self-sufficiency, social advancement, and educational progression. Dominique has also served on more than a dozen boards such as the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec, Centraide of Greater Montreal and the CHU Ste-Justine Hospital Foundation.
Dominique’s economic, social and political leadership has been recognized by 20 awards and prizes including the Tribute from the Ordre des Ingénieurs du Québec for her exceptional contribution to the profession (2011), being named Young Global Leader by the Davos Economic Forum (2014) and awarded the Prix Mérite, the highest distinction awarded by the Foundation and Alumni of Polytechnique Montréal (2017).
She holds a bachelor in industrial engineering from Polytechnique Montréal and an MBA from HEC Montréal. Dominique is happily married and the mother of three teenagers who keep her on the toes.
