Presentation: Mosaïcultures: The Travelling Garden Tourism Success
Landscape architect Lise Cormier, characterized by her peers as being “extraordinarily efficient”, was inducted to the College of Fellows by the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects in 2012 and named La Presse Personality of the Week twice, in 2000 and 2013. She has received numerous other honours, including a Gold Medal in 2001 awarded by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society of Boston, the oldest and most prestigious horticultural society in the United States. As Director of the Ville de Montréal’s Parks, Gardens and Green Spaces Department from 1994 to 2003, she managed a $120M budget and over 1,200 employees annually. During this time, she created Mosaïcultures Internationales® to highlight the arrival of the new millennium in Montreal. Since 2000, nearly 10 million visitors have been amazed by this international competition and the many exhibitions presented throughout the world, notably in China, Japan, Turkey, France, Belgium, Italy and the United States. Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal, for which Ms. Cormier is the executive vice president and general manager, is currently preparing the MosaïCanada 150/Gatineau 2017 exhibition to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.
