    The Disciplinary Council of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec strikes Mario Crousset from the roll for a period of 20 weeks

    mercredi 19 septembre 2018
    • Montreal, September 19, 2018 – The Disciplinary Council of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec (OIQ) rendered its decision on guilt and penalty in the case of Mario Crousset who will be struck from the roll for a period of 20 weeks. In its decision, the Disciplinary Council also ordered Mr. Crousset to pay all costs in connection with the proceedings, including publication costs.
    • Mr. Crousset agreed to pay invoices totalling $22,575 for fictitious professional services that he then invoiced to Roche. For these actions, Mr. Crousset was found guilty of violating section 3.02.08 of the Code of Ethics of Engineers concerning the use of dishonest and doubtful practices. Mr. Crousset's offences occurred between January and May 2009, when he was president of Kwatroë Consultant, a consulting engineering firm based in Gaspé.

      The sanctions imposed by the Disciplinary Council are meant to protect the public by dissuading the professional from repeating the offences and by setting an example for other members of the profession.

      The full version of the Disciplinary Council’s decision, including the summary of charges, is available on the OIQ’s Web site. This decision was rendered by the Disciplinary Council on January 4, 2017. On February 1, 2017, Mr. Crousset filed an appeal with the Professions Tribunal. The Tribunal heard his appeal in February of this year and dismissed it in its decision rendered on September 6.
