Monique Champagne

I have been an accredited Official Stenotypist in the French language, the first time in 1973 by the Barreau de Québec, and a second time in 1998 by the Barreau de Montréal, Richelieu, Longueuil and Laval. I have exercised my functions before various Tribunals in the Criminal and Civil jurisdictions, in court and out of court. About twelve years of work for the Comité de Déontologie policière has allowed me to acquire a vast experience regarding administrative law, and particularly in the police domain.

I have had the opportunity to work for different organizations and institutions such as the Senate of Canada, in Chambers and such various permanent committees, Correctional Service of Canada, the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), the Administrative Tribunal of Quebec, the Commission des lésions professionnelles, several other courts, and of course the Superior Court and Court of Quebec. I have exercised my profession throughout Quebec, as well as Ontario and New Brunswick, as well as Iqaluit in Nunavut in Criminal Court.

In 2000, I have developed and commercialised a condensing and indexing software called Maxin, which has resulted in maintaining close business relationships and friendships with numerous colleagues throughout the Quebec territory.

With such solid experience, it is with great enthusiasm that I have taken on the role of maître de stage with the graduates of the l’École de sténographie judiciaire du Québec. I also assume the mentoring of new court reporters to our noble profession, a task that is an achievement that fills me with satisfaction and inspiration as far of their integration into the field.

I have been a member of the Association professionnelle des sténographes officiels du Québec (APSOQ) from its very beginning, served on the Board of Directors for more than 20 years, and held the title of President for the term of 2014 - 2015.

My goal is to perpetuate the reputation of Steno Exact, which has always aimed for the full satisfaction of its customers, by not only the vast experience of the former members of the office, but equally by its use of the fine point of high technology.
