Oct. 25, 2023 – The Board of Directors of the Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC) has appointed Suzanne Bergeron as the SQDC’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Bergeron will be the first woman to head the SQDC and will take up her duties on November 27.

With an McGill-HEC Montréal Executive MBA, governance training from the IGOPP (Institute for Governance of Private and Public Organizations), and an Executive Leadership Certificate from Cornell University, Bergeron has more than 20 years’ experience in strategic management, talent development, and strategic planning of executive succession.

For 18 years, she worked at Sodexo, a global provider of restaurant, facility, and equipment management services, where her positions ranged from chief of staff and office of the group CEO (France) to vice president, human resources (Canada) and president of Sodexo Canada.


In her role as president and CEO, Bergeron will aim to guide all of the SQDC’s operations to “ensure the company can carry out its mission of distributing cannabis with a focus on health protection in order to convert users to the legal market without encouraging cannabis use,” notes a press release.
