Fonds de solidarité FTQ, and Gaétan Morin, President and Chief
Executive Officer of the Fonds, are pleased to announce the appointment

its duty to ensure it has adequate and effective operating processes.

create such a position, it is important for the Fonds to continue
adopting best governance practices. We are pleased to be able to count
on someone like Sylvie Des Roches, who has extensive experience in the
field," added Mr. Morin.

governance, particularly in internal audit, compliance and financial
controls involving large, highly regulated financial institutions. From
1984 to 1999, she served as auditor at various corporations (Mallette
