Jean-Éric Tremblay, full professor in the Department of Biology at Université Laval and scientific director of Québec-Océan, was selected following a call for applications issued in March 2020 by Université Laval. Dr. Tremblay has extensive knowledge of northern and Arctic issues. Having been involved in the establishment of the INQ from the outset, it is with great enthusiasm that I intend to work with the management team, member institutions and our partners to pursue the development of the Institute and make it a world-class centre for northern and Arctic research. The future of the North is a circumpolar issue, and we now have a new tool for showcasing Quebec's know how and taking part in major international initiatives.
