November 1st, 2023: A great day for Mrs. Manon Berthiaume

Manon BerthiaumeThe first of November of 2023 officially marked the last day at the Center Crépeau for our very dear and precious Manon Berthiaume as the senior administrative coordinator. The first day of November not only permanently marked the history of the Center but also the relationships of deep and sincere friendship that this great woman, Manon Berthiaume, has always been and continues to be.

On behalf of the current team at the Center, as well as all the people who have had the chance to work alongside Manon during her admirable career, we wish her the sweetest and most serene retirement with her partner, children, and grandchildren.

Manon, to put it simply: we will miss you. Thank you for making the Center a place where we wanted to be and return. With you at its heart, the Center shone at its brightest.

With all our gratitude,

The extended family of the Center

Éducaloi & Centre Paul-André Crépeau for Private and Comparative Law

The content of these video capsules, produced by the Paul-André Crépeau Centre for Private and Comparative Law, were made possible by a collaboration with Éducaloi and Me Étienne Cossette-Lefebvre (Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation grant recipient). 

On the occasion of our fall 2023 publication of the volume Successions of the Private Law Dictionary and Bilingual Lexicons series, the Paul-André Crépeau Centre for Private and Comparative Law – in partnership with Éducaloi and Me Étienne Cossette-Lefebvre (Canada Graduate Scholar in Honour of Nelson Mandela and Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation grantee) – has created a series of videos with the goal of improving access to basic knowledge about succession (estate) law in Quebec.  

In this series of videos, Me Étienne Cossette-Lefebvre responds to the question “Which will to choose?...” – explaining not only the advantages and disadvantages of the various types of wills (notarized, holograph, in the presence of witnesses), but also what to do when there is no will.  

“Which will to choose? Without a will”

The Crépeau Centre thanks the Chambre des notaires du Québec and the Department of Justice Canada for their financial support.
