Hononary Chairman

“My wife Miruna and I are the proud parents of three beautiful and healthy children. A few years ago, cancer struck my niece Catherine, a real shock wave for the whole family. Seven years old, so innocent and full of life but suddenly doomed. After months of uncertainty about the future, medical progress got the better of this pernicious intruder, not without efforts and sacrifices from Cathou, her parents, her grandparents and her brothers.  That was six years ago.

Today, things are going well, very well. The battle is never totally won, but the future is bright for this soon-to-be teenager who will certainly give her parents a run for their money. With this uncertainty comes a great feeling of helplessness; I am not a doctor, so moral support is all I could offer.  Fortunately, thanks to Leucan, there are many resources available that have helped my niece and her family when it counted. For these resources to remain and progress, funding is needed. You don’t have to be a doctor to help and that’s why I accepted to be the honorary chairman of the event.

For the past few years Miruna and I have solicited our network many times for the cause, whether it be skiing, kayaking, go-karting or just having a cocktail. We believe that it is important for the business community to give generously and not wait until it affects us to get involved.  Thank you for your support to The 2022 Leucan Experience.”

Jean-Sébastien Giguère, h3

Chef, maple syrup producer, beekeeper, restaurateur and entrepreneur, Jean-Sébastien Giguère is a person who moves at 300 km/h. Filled with ideas, he can’t stand sitting around doing nothing!

Jean-Sébastien began his career alongside Danny St-Pierre and Martin Juneau before joining Normand Laprise’s kitchen at Le Toqué restaurant for eight years. Today, in addition to being a partner in the restaurant h3 in Montreal, he is also involved with Le Coureur des Bois in Beloeil and La Cabane du Coureur in Saint-Marc-sur-Richelieu.

His cuisine emphasizes self-sufficiency and local products. He also collaborates on the Aeria urban greenhouse project and the Etamamiou outfitter project on the North Shore. He maintains good relationships with fishermen, market gardeners, breeders and winemakers. Your plate will be composed of the sum of all this on November 10th.

Father of two young healthy children, his participation as Chef for the Leucan Experience is an honor. His team will make you live an unforgettable evening.
