Maurice Forget, C.M.
2009 Prix Arts-Affaires de Montreal
Maurice Forget, the Honorary Estonian Consul in Montreal, and a partner at Fasken Martineau, has won the Prix Arts-Affaires de Montréal in the Arts-Business Personality category. A well-known figure on the Montréal cultural scene, Maurice Forget was honoured for his outstanding contribution to the Stewart Hall Art Gallery, but also to 22 other organizations that he actively supports.
Every year, these prestigious prizes are awarded to a large enterprise, an SME and a business personality who have been actively involved in culture. Their support can take a variety of forms: the loan of a collection, a fundraising campaign, sitting on a board of directors, etc.
Cultural organizations in the Greater Montreal area nominate the companies and business people that have offered them invaluable support.
