Fortier is a French-language Canadian television series which debuted on TVA from February 3, 2000 and ended on April 1, 2004. A subtitled version later aired on the English-language CBC Television network, as part of its now-defunct late-night Best of French Canada anthology series.[1] It was made by Aetios Productions, and the show's creator Fabienne Larouche.


Anne Fortier (Lorain) is a criminal psychologist from Montreal, who works with the investigators of SAS (Anti-Sociopathic Service), a fictional police division specialising in crimes involving abnormal psychology. Although their sordid crimes include a shoe thief and a pyromaniac, most of the cases given a lot of time on the series are murders, often serial killings. While solving these cases Fortier and her colleagues must wrestle with her own murky past and several psychological issues.



  • The series earned Michèle-Barbara Pelletier a Prix Gémeaux for Best Supporting Actress - Series or Dramatic Program for her appearance in episode three in the second season. Four other Prix Gemeaux nominations were given in the category Best Supporting Actor - Series or Dramatic Program.
