President of the Order
Me Hélène Potvin
“I am very happy to have been elected President of the Chambre des notaires du Québec and I am enthusiastic about the idea of participating in the continuous improvement of the notarial profession. The context in which we are now pushes us to see things from other angles, to be agile, creative while having a great sense of responsibility. It is also with this in mind that I wish to bring the professional order closer to its members in order to ensure that quality services are offered at all times by notaries to the population, for their greater protection ”, underlines Me Potvin. .
