R. Luc Beaulieu
Luc Beaulieu has developed expertise in the areas of employment and labour law, human rights and freedoms and administrative law (litigation and judicial review) and frequently represents federal and provincial public and private corporations before various judicial and quasi-judicial bodies with jurisdiction in such matters.
Mr. Beaulieu regularly advises companies on management styles that contribute to reducing, if not eliminating, their employees’ interest in unionizing. He has particular expertise in manufacturing, air transport, aeronautics, broadcasting, cable television and bus and truck transportation.
Mr. Beaulieu’s services are retained by the Conseil du patronat du Québec (Quebec business council) to appear before parliamentary and government committees and commissions and as a delegate to the consultative council on labour and manpower.
In October 1992 Mr. Beaulieu was appointed amicus curiae by the Department of Justice Canada to defend the respondents’ position regarding the powers of inquiry of the Canada Labour Relations Board before the Supreme Court of Canada in the matter of Canadian Labour Relations Board v Nolisair International Inc. A decision favourable to the position defended by the amicus curiae of the Supreme Court of Canada was handed down on October 21, 1993, and was published in the Supreme Court Reports at  3 SCR 724.
Mr. Beaulieu served as national chair of our employment and labour group and was a member of our management committee from 2009 to 2012.
