Christian Dubé

Minister of Health and Social Services, Quebec

Christian Dubé studied at the Petit Séminaire de Québec, before obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Université Laval in 1979, and becoming a member of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants in 1981.

In the early 1980s, Mr. Dubé worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Quebec City, Calgary and Montreal as head of corporate finance, and then helped found the firm Biron Lapierre Dubé & associés in 1986. During the following years, he held various positions in the private sector, notably as an executive at Domtar, where he worked for eight years, and at Cascades, as Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer. From 2009 to 2012, he was in charge of the company’s European subsidiary.

It was at this time that he made his first foray into politics, running in the September 4, 2012 provincial election, at the end of which he was elected MNA for the riding of Lévis, for the Coalition avenir Québec, until 2014. He then became Senior Vice-President of the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec.

Back on the political scene in 2018, he was elected Caquist MNA for La Prairie. At the beginning of this mandate, the Prime Minister appointed him Minister responsible for Government Administration, Chairman of the Treasury Board and Minister responsible for the Montérégie region. He held these positions until June 22, 2020, when he assumed his current role as Minister of Health and Social Services.
