Mr. Dubourg began his professional career in 1985 as auditor in one of the largest Canadian accounting firm, after which he began a remarkable 20 year career in the federal public service, notably as leader of the team assembled to help uncover the underground economy. This was followed by his appointment as advisor to the Assistant Commissioner. While pursuing his public service career, Mr. Dubourg taught at the collegial and post-secondary levels and acted as a consultant internationally in the accounting, financial and fiscal areas. Well known for his commitment to learning and for inspiring students to acquire skills using adapted tools and targeted teaching approaches, Mr. Dubourg was principally singled out when he put together a Handbook on procedures and a Code of Ethics for inspectors which he trained as auditors. He is the recipient of many honors and awards including the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, the Governor General’s Award, an honor award from l’UQAM and the CA Émérite award . Mr. Dubourg was elected Liberal Member of the National Assembly for Viau in the 2007 provincial election. He was first appointed parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Emploi et Solidarité sociale then became Parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Finance. Reelected in 2008 and 2012, he decided to run federally for the Liberal Party of Canada (LPC) in the November 2013 Bourassa by-election, which he won. He is now the National Revenue and DEC(Q) Critic for the Liberal Party of Canada.
