Happy retirement Jean !

The whole QICSS team wishes a happy retirement to its Executive Director, Jean Poirier. In office since the opening of the QICSS in 2001, Jean made a very substantial contribution to the development of our infrastructure and the promotion of research in social statistics in Quebec. Ever attentive to promote access to data for researchers and to ensure the transfer of knowledge from their research, he was a valued ally and collaborator for the entire community.

Jean, we wish you well on your retirement!
