Montreal, October 26, 2023 – Jeremy Ghio, Director of Public Relations at TACT, and Geneviève Lamarre, Legal Counsel, Operations and Projects at CDPQ Infra, have been elected as members of the board of directors of Jeunesses Musicales Canada Foundation during the annual general meeting held on October 25th. On this occasion, Richard Lupien, Director and President of the Fondation JM Canada for 17 years, also announced his departure from the Board of Directors. The Fondation JM Canada would like to thank him warmly for his involvement and invaluable contribution over the years.  

Jeremy Ghio, a seasoned professional, brings his expertise in communication, crisis management, and public relations to the organization. His experience as the Director of Public Relations at TACT and his background in federal and provincial politics make him a valuable asset. Jeremy is also known for his ability to simplify complex issues into clear messages, which is an essential asset for the Foundation. He has an in-depth understanding of the Canadian media markets and frequently appears as a political commentator in the media.   

Geneviève Lamarre, a young lawyer specializing in infrastructure law within the operations team of the Réseau express métropolitain (REM) at CDPQ Infra, joins the board of directors. Besides her promising legal career, Geneviève shares a passion for classical violin and road cycling. She understands the importance of music among young people and wishes to actively contribute to the mission of Jeunesses Musicales Canada Foundation.
