A former vice-president of a division of SNC-Lavalin, Yves Cadotte, who testified earlier than the Charbonneau Fee, has been fined $30,000 by the Quebec Order of Engineers for his function in a contract sharing scheme.

The order’s disciplinary council announced the three fines on Friday, saying Cadotte “violated moral obligations that strike on the very coronary heart of practising his career” and his actions “forged a shadow on your entire engineering career.”

The council discovered Cadotte tolerated or participated within the scheme in engineering providers in Montreal and Longueuil between 2002 and 2009, a scheme that noticed corporations informed what contracts they might get and at what worth earlier than a name for bids was even issued.

On the time, Cadotte was vice-president of enterprise improvement within the basic and environmental engineering division of SNC-Lavalin.

Cadotte had no prior disciplinary file, and cooperated with the Charbonneau Fee inquiry into collusion within the development business. He testified in March 2013 “in a frank and unreserved method,” the choice notes.
