The awards program recognizes the achievements of 20 federal public service employees for their performance, innovation, and contributions they make to Canadian society. Lemieux won the award in the category of valuing and supporting people, receiving it for his leadership and excellence in dealing with employees.

Lemieux incorporates NRC's core values. He believes in teamwork within his region, between other regions, as well as with NRC-IRAP's numerous partners.

All of these qualities have a significant impact on the success NRC-IRAP has with its clients, many of whom are small and medium-sized businesses.

On a yearly basis, NRC-IRAP helps some 12,4000 firms, providing the technology advice, assistance and services necessary to develop and exploit technologies in the competitive, global economy.
