Mr. Speaker, I wish to pay tribute to Suzanne Veillette, a resident of Jonquière, who recently received an award of recognition from the Association pour la recherche au collégial.
For many years, Ms. Veillette has conducted research on the living conditions of regional citizens, as well as on regional youth issues. She has also done a number of studies concerning Cegep students enrolled in work-study programs.
Because of her association with the Jonquière Cegep's Groupe ÉCOBES, her knowledge, and the excellence of her research, Ms. Veillette is often invited to take part in international symposia.
This award, which is presented annually, recognizes the full range of Ms. Veillette's work, but is also a tribute to the entire Saguenay--Lac-Saint-Jean Cegep community.
Once again, my hearty congratulations to Suzanne Veillette, who does Quebec and the Saguenay region proud.
