Carl-Éric Guertin

Since 2013, Carl-Éric Guertin has been the director general of the ÉCONOMUSÉE Network Society (ENS) overseeing the Canadian and International development of the organization.  Established in 1992, the ENS, a not-for-profit organization, is the founder, owner and promoter of the ÉCONOMUSÉE® concept. Now grown into an international organization with its head office in Québec City, Canada, the network of partners shares the same goals – the continuation, protection and promotion of traditional trades and know-how in the craft and agri-food sectors. 

Carl-Éric Guertin earned a bachelor degree in forestry in 1993 from the Faculty of Forestry of Laval University (Québec City, Canada) and started his forestry career overseas.  He completed his Master’s in 1997 degree from the same University, in Forest Sciences in the field of Forest Policies and Community Forestry.  After working for 15 years for trade associations in forestry and the forest products sector where he developed an expertise in responsible trade and sustainability issues, promotion of the use of wood in construction to tackle climate change, communications, and regional and international development, he joined the tourism industry in 2013.

The primary mission of ENS is to maximise the full potential of the ÉCONOMUSÉE® concept worldwide by allowing artisans and craft enterprises to develop and promote in-situ traditionally inspired crafts and knowledge as well as to offer the public a high-quality cultural and tourism learning experience.
