  • News

At the end of 2022, the Canadian Consulting Engineer magazine invited the industry to submit entries for its new Lifetime Achievement Awards. This initiative recognizes leaders for their exceptional achievements and contribution to the engineering profession. In its January–February 2023 edition, the magazine featured the three award recipients, among whom included Maurice Brisson, founding member of BBA.

  1. In the article about Maurice Brisson, we discover that he grew up in a family of entrepreneurs—his parents owned a bakery—which quickly instilled in him the importance of properly meeting client needs. We learn about his love of science, his early days as a high-voltage system researcher at Institut de recherche d’Hydro-Québec and, when working at Shawinigan Engineering, having met those who would one day co-found BBA with him in 1980. The article also talks about electrical engineering projects he completed abroad, his wind energy expertise and his role as a mentor for over 30 junior engineers.

    His philanthropic activities are also discussed, including creating the Maurice Brisson Scholarship Fund and the Maurice Brisson Scholarship for Excellence at Polytechnique Montréal, his alma mater, as well as recognitions he has received, like the Order of Canada, in 2022, and the Mentor of the Year Award in Consulting Engineering from the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies – Québec, in 2016.

    As a BBA founding member, Maurice is always active in the firm. This visionary entrepreneur, renowned expert and sought-after mentor has helped make BBA what it is today: a firm known for its innovative, sustainable and reliable solutions, as well as for its expertise in the energy and natural resources sectors.
