MONTREAL — The disciplinary council of the Ordre des ingenieurs du Quebec, the province’s engineers association, has announced sanctions on Yves Fallu stemming from incidents that occurred over a decade ago.
Fallu was found guilty of violating two sections of the Code of Ethics of Engineers on May 8 for participating in a contract sharing scheme designed to circumvent the competitive bidding process of the City of Laval.
The offences occurred between 2007 and 2009, while he was president of Equation Groupe Conseil.
Fallu has been ordered to pay a total of $20,000 in fines, noted a release.
In its decision, the disciplinary council also ordered Fallu to pay all costs in connection with the processing of the complaint.
“The sanctions imposed by the disciplinary council are meant to protect the public by dissuading professionals from repeating offences and by setting an example for other members of the profession,” said the statement.
