I was born in Bourget on December 2, 1925; my childhood and teen years were a very satisfying period of my life because of what I feel God allowed me to experience. I am grateful for my upbringing and the education I received both at home and in school. At the age of 17 or 18, I already knew what I wanted and where I wanted to go. My life plan had become clear in my mind.
My professional life has been extremely rewarding due to the fact that I contributed in the business world as equally within the community.
For me, the necessary prerequisites to success were belief in God, respect of family values, self-confidence, respect for others, work and tenacity. People must always remember that they live in a society that has given so much to them; therefore, it seems only natural to give back part of what we receive with community involvement and contribution.
Community involvement has always played a major part in Mr. Tassé’s life, regardless of a heavy workload and continuous participation in professional associations.
This involvement resulted not only in participation as a volunteer administrator but also in the form of financial assistance for various communal projects. Such implication occurred at the local, regional and international levels. At the local level, Mr. Tassé was a church warden and a founding member of parish community groups. Regionally, he founded the Society St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store in Hull, was chairman of the United Way campaign in Western Quebec and was also a member of the board of directors of the Université du Québec à Hull and the Centre Hospitalier Pierre Janet foundations. At the international level, he provided generous financial support to community development projects in India and in Chad.
Passion for humanitarianism is more than a personal interest of mine. It is imbedded in the culture and management values of Les Immeubles E. Tassé.
