Organized by the Women’s Executive Network (WXN) every year, the Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards is the country’s most recognizable event for women in the private, public and not-forprofit sectors.
At the 2019 gala in Toronto, Christiane Germain, LLD 13, was inducted into WXN’s Hall of Fame. Germain is the co-founder and copresident of Groupe Germain Hotels, a family-run business. Together with her brother, Jean-Yves Germain, she has successfully grown the business to include three hotel banners: Le Germain, Alt and Alt+, with hotels from Calgary to St. John’s.
Germain’s efforts on behalf of her industry have been recognized by many. She is a member of the Order of Canada and l’Ordre national du Québec. Germain also dedicates a lot of her time to various social and charitable causes, and is the chair of the board of directors of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec.
