BOARD OF DIRECTORS
President, Founder and Spokesman for the FDPRF
Stéphane Blais was born on August 12, 1970, in La Sarre, Abitibi-Témiscamingue.
He grew up in Saint-Félix-de-Dalquier, a small village near Amos, Abitibi.
He comes from a business background, as his family owned the village’s grocery store and a few school buses. That is where Stéphane developed his entrepreneurship and his ability to establish relationships with others.
In 1987, Stéphane finished high school. After a series of interviews in the Amos district, he was selected to participate in the Student Exchange Program of the Rotary International Club, which sent him to study in Perth, Australia, for a year. That Program gave Stéphane an opportunity to improve on his English, and especially, to make friends from all over the world.
When he came back in the fall of 1988, Stéphane discovered Anthony Robbins in an interview conducted by Robert-Guy Scully at Radio-Canada. That interview inspired him to develop the five premises and 7 qualities of the great leaders, which would henceforth guide all his actions.
Fall 1988: Stéphane registered at the Séminaire Saint-Augustin in Saint-Augustin-de-Demaures, near Quebec City, where he attended college. Later on, he obtained a bachelor’s degree in political science and a license in accounting science, thus combining his two passions: business and social sciences.
From 1997 to 2002, Stéphane worked in turn for accounting firms Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, Choquette Corriveau and Samson Bélair Deloitte & Touche.
In 2003, he founded his own accounting firm: Blais CPA inc.
Stéphane was a member of the Ordre des CPA from September 2003 to March 2021.
In 2013, Stéphane became an activist on the social scene, campaigning for Mayor in Lévis. In 2014, he founded the Mouvement intégrité Québec (Quebec Integrity Movement) and later gave a series of conferences on the necessity of understanding the negative influence of the banking system and tax havens on democracy and public finances, and on the necessity to establish a true democracy in Quebec, through referendums on the initiatives of the community.
In January 2018, he became the Leader of Citoyens au pouvoir du Québec (Quebec Citizens in Power). Following an in-depth reorganization of the party, he was able, in less than three months, to present 56 candidates at the 2018 general elections.
That 2018 election notably brought together many of today’s well-known leaders of the resistance movement, as it relates to the health crisis. Among those are Alexis Cossette-Trudel, Daniel Pilon, Daniel St-Hilaire, Stéphane Lévesque and Réjean Couture.
In the spring of 2020, Stéphane created the Foundation for the Defense of People’s Rights and Freedoms (here called the Foundation).
The Foundation organized one of the most important prosecutions against health measures on the planet and put many of the most respected international experts to contribution.
The mission of the Foundation is to protect the people’s rights and freedoms, focusing on
the community’s awareness and rallying, and to take legal actions, both civil and criminal.
Stéphane is the father of four children and husband to Marie-Josée Dutil from Saint-Gédéon-de-Beauce.
His role models are Anthony Robbins, Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King.
His social values: freedom, integrity, self-liability.
