With the engineering firm, Lavalin, of Montreal, he was project director for the United Nations Development Program, vice­president of marketing and commercial development, and a director of the company since 1974.


Mr. Masse is active in community affairs, as director of organizations such as the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Cana­dian Writers' Foundation, Katimavik, the Canadian Refugee Foundation, and the Lanaudière Summer Festival.


The Minister expects to meet with DOC employees soon, beginning with those at headquarters and the CRC, and then trav­elling to the regional and district offices.
