Since his youth, Marc-André has been fascinated by money and banking and its social, community, and even family underpinnings. He has worked at a credit union; as a financial journalist at Bloomberg Business News, as an economist at a think tank specializing in fiscal, monetary, and banking policy; as an economist/analyst for banking and finance committees in Canada’s Parliament; and now as director of Financial Sector Policy at Credit Union Central of Canada (CUCC), where he advocates on behalf of the credit union system and leads CUCC’s research efforts.
