Born in 1947, Pierre Senécal was trained in political science in Montreal and Paris. He worked as environmental advisor (human environment) at Hydro-Québec from 1980 to 2006.
Pierre has specialized in social impact assessment and population resettlement, mostly in the context of large-scale hydroelectric projects or other types of electric generation (nuclear, thermal, solar), powerline and road projects. He has designed, supervised and carried out these types of studies in Canada, the Near-East and Asia. He has participated in capacity-building and humanitarian projects in Western Africa and India for the E-7, an NGO regrouping the world’s largest electrical utilities.
