Christiane is the co-founder and co-president of Germain Hotels, alongside her brother Jean-Yves. She first opened the “first boutique hotel in the country” in 1988, the Germain-des-Prés in Sainte-Foy. Their success led Christian and Jean-Yves to expand, opening boutique hotels in Quebec City and Montreal, eventually entering the Ontario market in Toronto. Christiane is responsible for Germain Hotels’ brand development and customer experience. To date, they have welcomed a third generation of the Germain family to work for their group of hospitality companies.
