Last Convention Keynote Speaker
Dr. Stanley Vollant grew up in the Innu community of Pessamit in the Côte-Nord region. Dr. Vollant obtained an MD diploma from Université de Montréal in 1989. He completed his training in 1994 with a specialization in general surgery, making him the first Aboriginal surgeon in Québec. Among his many achievements, he represented 9,000 doctors as the president of l’Association médicale du Québec and served on the Executive Board of the Canadian Medical Association.
Dr. Vollant currently travels on footpaths trodden by his ancestors, the Innu Meshkenu. His work aims to facilitate the meeting of people in First Nations’ communities and neighbouring communities to inspire young people about the importance of education and the acquisition of healthy habits. He began his march totalling nearly 6,000 kilometres in the fall of 2010 and expects to complete his journey in 2017.
The keynote speaker for our 2017 annual convention will be announced shortly!
