“We are fortunate in the City of Deux-Montagnes to have an experienced and exceptional general manager. On behalf of myself and the members of the municipal council, I congratulate Mr. Ferland on obtaining this certification. In addition to being a provincial pioneer in this field, he constantly demonstrates a commitment to excellence in the performance of his duties. The population of Deux-Montagnes is the primary beneficiary of his expertise and its positive impact,” proudly expressed Mayor Denis Martin of Deux-Montagnes.

Launched in 2022, the Certification in Municipal Governance program was developed based on the competency profile established for the position of general manager in a Quebec municipality. This groundbreaking program was made possible thanks to MAMH, Énergir, and ÉNAP.
