Letter from the Minister of Education and Higher Education for Quebec

November 27, 2018

Dear McGill colleagues,

You will find here a letter to you from Jean-François Roberge, Minister of Education and Higher Education for Quebec since October 18, and Member of the National Assembly for Chambly.

Let me take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the work you do in support of McGill’s mission, and of higher education in Quebec. As Mr. Roberge states in his letter, it is thanks to your efforts, week-in, week-out, that we can be proud of our universities.

I am very pleased to note that the Minister shares my view of the importance of higher education. Quebec universities train the leaders of tomorrow, and make important contributions to social mobility and economic development. I look forward to working with the government over the next four years to enhance the quality of higher education for our students and for the betterment of our society.
