After completing his university education, he practiced law as a Federal Court of Appeal Prosecutor and later as a defense attorney in private practice for nearly ten years.

Pierre M. acquired his recruiting expertise at several Montreal recruitment firms where he was able to analyze and mastered the complex issues of talent acquisition, human resources and retention.

Whether as a consultant, business development manager or recruitment director, Pierre M. Fortin has worked for nearly 20 years with start-ups, SMEs and large organizations in Canada and the United States.


Unlike standard percentage billing, Scientia's unique pricing offers you total accounting predictability, with candidate salary expectations having no impact on our fees. Why should it be any different? We are paid for the quality of our work and results and not because some candidates are expecting more money. Where is the fairness in that ?

As such, our candidates are evaluated solely on their expertise and added-value to your company, not on the potential financial benefit to Scientia. 

With a 98% success rate in our recruitment mandates, we have full confidence in the efficiency of our internal process and the professionalism of our candidates. That's why we offer a minimum replacement guarantee of six months for all types of positions.

Simple, efficient and without pressure...
