Benoît Gauthier has very strong experience in research — in academic, private and public settings. He has specialized in strategic and organizational research and intervention, in market research, in program evaluation, in applied social research and in policy analysis. Over the years, his involvement in more than 500 research and intervention assignments (including more than 100 evaluations) has allowed him to build a particular expertise in the measurement and the management of client satisfaction, health and social services, technology, immigration, housing, human resource management, arts and culture, and management information systems. From a methodological standpoint, Mr. Gauthier has developed an enviable reputation both as a top-level quantitative and qualitative analyst and as a strong project manager.

After his doctoral studies, Mr. Gauthier has successively occupied the positions of chief of research in a branch of Justice Canada, senior evaluator at the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, evaluation manager then director of program evaluation at Communications Canada and executive vice president and chief of operations at Ekos Research Associates. Early in 1996, he founded Circum Network Inc. Since then, Mr. Gauthier has developed an interest in organizational management issues; this interest has allowed him to bridge measurement concerns and management concerns. He has acquired the Credentialed Evaluator, Certified Marketing Research Professional (relinquished since then), and Certified Management Consultant (relinquished since then) certifications. He was a member of the Ordre des administrateurs agréés du Québec.

Mr. Gauthier has taught social research methodology, program evaluation and decision-making methods at the undergraduate and graduate levels at the Quebec École nationale d'administration publique, Carleton University, University of Ottawa, and Université du Québec en Outaouais. He is an adjunct professor at Carleton University, Honorary Fellow of the Northern Institute, Charles Darwin University, and Fellow of the Canadian Evaluation Society. He is the joint editor of the textbook entitled Recherche sociale : de la problématique à la collecte des données, an introduction to social research, for the first six editions (1984, 1992, 1997, 2003, 2008, 2016; Presses de l'Université du Québec; Portuguese edition in 2003 with Lusociência)..

Mr. Gauthier has completed a Master's degree in political science at Université Laval, a Master's degree in public administration at ÉNAP and the course work and comprehensive examinations towards a doctorate in political science at Carleton University.
