CIMA+’s commitment towards corporate social responsibility is extremely important to me because it means taking into consideration the well-being of our employees, fostering the development of communities, and reducing our environmental footprint.

Vice President, Infrastructure and Environment, Quebec

Suzanne Demeules joined CIMA+ in 1998, and has been a partner since 2001. She currently holds the position of Senior Director for the Transportation Engineering Department, where she manages a sizeable team of professionals who carry out projects of various scales in the areas of transportation planning, traffic, and sustainable mobility.

She oversees studies for public transit, transportation planning, traffic, signage, traffic lights, and road development, as well as the preparation of drawings and specifications.

Her passion for sustainable mobility

Public investments and road developments are no longer planned the way they used to be. Sustainable and universal mobility, the delivery of integrated projects, creation of living environments, and even smart cities are part of our new reality! Therefore, it is more important than ever that we work closely with the various partners, stakeholders within the community and professionals (urban planner, architects, economists, landscape architects, etc.). Suzanne finds this type of teamwork particularly stimulating.

Her role on the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors ensures sound management aligned with CIMA+’s interests, and supports the management team in the strategic planning process, to ensure growth and succession planning. All of the members have engineering backgrounds, but the specific experiences of each one inform and enrich the discussions. Suzanne believes that as a woman, she addresses topics from a different angle, which allows the Board to consider a diversity of perspectives and solutions.
