What does sustainable mobility mean to you?
For me, sustainable mobility means promoting effective and safe mobility for all users, while respecting the environment. Beyond the use of more environmentally friendly means of transportation, it aims to contribute to social equity, in keeping with the principles of universal accessibility. Through sustainable mobility, we strive to meet the travel needs of the current and future generations.
Why did you choose the mobility sector? What do you like about it?
I chose mobility because it is an area that is part of people’s daily lives, one that resonates with them. People’s movements are our main unit of measurement, so human beings are at the heart of our analyses. The population’s travel habits are influenced by several parameters as varied as the efficiency and comfort of transportation means, land use planning, infrastructure safety and user education. This makes it a complex area and therefore all the more interesting.
Since when are you part of CIMA+’s great family?
I joined the CIMA+ family in 2018 after completing my studies. I have been developing professionally and personally within the company for four and a half years now.
Why did you decide to join the CIMA+ Mobility Team?
I decided to join the Mobility Team at CIMA+ primarily because of the great expertise of the people who make up the team in the various aspects of mobility, which represented an interesting opportunity to develop my technical skills, as well as for the warm atmosphere that I felt right from the hiring process. I decided to stay because:
- Our supervisors listen to their employees and encourage me to develop my skills in the aspects of mobility that interest me most.
- Mutual support and teamwork within the department are highly valued.
- There are many opportunities for career progression within the company.
What do you like most in your work?
I can work on large multidisciplinary projects. In addition to being challenging and interesting from a mobility point of view, these projects allow us to work with colleagues from other disciplines and to develop a more global view.
What I find most rewarding about my work is seeing the impact we have in improving people’s daily lives, through the implementation of the various recommendations we make in the framework of our projects.
Do you believe that your work makes a difference in the community and why?
Through our work, we aim to provide users with seamless, safe and comfortable travel networks:
- While respecting the environment.
- By promoting universal accessibility.
- By encouraging healthy lifestyles, such as walking and cycling.
Which project are you most proud of and why?
The project I am most proud of is the securing of Highway 117 between Labelle and Rivière-Rouge for the Ministère des Transports et de la Mobilité durable. I had the chance to work on the opportunity study as soon as I arrived at CIMA+. Afterwards, I participated in all the studies up to the completion of the drawings and specifications. I am proud to have contributed to this project from start to finish, especially since its main objective is user safety.
How do you define CIMA+’s Mobility Team?
I would describe the CIMA+ mobility team as welcoming, stimulating and diverse:
- Welcoming, because team members are open and friendly. No one is left on their own, both professionally and from a relational point of view. Someone is always available to help us on a technical level. Various social activities are also organized to develop team cohesion outside the professional framework.
- Stimulating, because team members are not afraid of new challenges. In addition to developing and maintaining our knowledge up to date, we are constantly striving to improve ourselves and develop new skills in other areas.
- Diversified, as team members are specialized in different complementary areas of mobility. Our combined skills allow us to be very competitive in our field.
