New Director, Resource Management and Aboriginal Affairs, Quebec Region
Denis Gros-Louis joined Fisheries and Oceans Canada on October 30, 2014, as director of the Resource Management and Aboriginal Affairs Branch. Before that, he was Indian Registrar at Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development.
Educated as a lawyer, Mr. Gros-Louis began his career at a regional level with Indian and Northern Affairs as Associate Director of Land Operations, then as Director of First Nations Land Management Initiatives. After holding positions at the Privy Council Office and Infrastructure Canada, he was named Registrar of Indian Lands and Director of Land Operations at Indian and Northern Affairs.
He successfully completed assignments at the Office of the Veterans Ombudsman and Canadian Heritage. While on assignment at Canadian Heritage, Mr. Gros-Louis and his team received the Deputy Minister's Award for Government of Canada online presence for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.
Exciting challenges are in store for Mr. Gros-Louis, who is full of enthusiasm about working with the maritime, fishing industry and aquaculture sectors to offer quality services. "I can't wait to work in a regional context again, where work is in symbiosis with the clientele."
