An accomplished actress and pianist, the Honourable Andrée Champagne was already a well-known personality in Quebec when she decided to enter politics in 1984. During her career in entertainment, Andrée Champagne served on the Board of Directors for l'Institut québécois du cinéma and was Vice-President and General Secretary of l'Union des artistes. A veteran of many television, radio, film and theatre productions, she is most widely recognized for her role in the television series Les Belles Histoires des pays d'en haut. Ms. Andrée Champagne was elected twice - in 1984 and 1988 - as the Member of Parliament for Saint-Hyacinthe - Bagot and in 1984 was appointed to Cabinet as Minister of State for Youth.
