A NEW DIRECTOR at
THE CANADIAN HYDROGRAPHIC SERVICE
Andrée Bolduc

Last February, Andrée Bolduc was named Director of the Canadian Hydrographic Service, Quebec Region, taking over from Paul Bellemare who recently retired.

Dr. Bolduc holds a Bachelor’s degree in Geology, earned at the University of Ottawa, a Master’s degree in Geo-science from Carleton University and a PhD in Geological Science, from Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. In 1989, Andrée Bolduc began her career as a project leader with the Geological Survey of Canada, Quebec Branch. As a research scientist specializing in Quaternary formations in Eastern Canada, she contributed significantly to the acquisition of new knowledge about the geology of superficial formations along the north shore of the St. Lawrence as far as the Laurentian foothills. In addition, she designed 3D geological models of aquifers such as eskers.

Since 2005, she has focussed on the marine geology of the St. Lawrence estuary, developing expertise in the acquisition, processing and interpretation of multibeam bathymetric data. Her work has led her to draw up new mapping standards, conduct integrated readings that could be used to support decision-making for matters involving offshore areas, and develop natural resources to improve how the territory is used by taking into consideration social, economic and environmental values.

The new regional director of the Canadian Hydrographic Service intends to support her team so that together they can continue to pursue the development and evolution of hydrography, and effectively address the needs and requirements of a diversified clientele.
