Yvan Cardinal

Now retired after a 35-year career in teaching, I have the opportunity to serve my fellow citizens on a full-time basis. Since being elected in 2009, I have made a commitment to continue contributing as Mayor. Pincourt’s citizens are my top priority and the point of everything I do. As Mayor, I hope to revive the feeling of attachment to Pincourt and the pleasure of living here.

Our family chose to move to Pincourt in 1980. Our three children attended Notre-Dame-de-Lorette primary school and took part in many of the sports activities available in the surrounding area. My wife and I have always been involved in a variety of groups and associations, which enabled us to make a life for ourselves here and meet some wonderful people.
I have been personally involved in a number of boards of directors, the youth centre, the Tennis Club (as President), the Office Municipale d'Habitation de Pincourt (also as President), and as an instructor for several sports teams.
We would like to thank the Pincourt community for accepting us and showing us everything this beautiful town has to offer. Pincourt is a welcoming town where life is good.
