He successfully ran as a candidate of Jean Doré's Rassemblement des citoyens et citoyennes de Montréal (RCM) for the district of Sault-au-Récollet in November 1986.
Tremblay resigned from the City Council on 12 December 1988, after he won a seat to the Canadian House of Commons.
Following the 1990 implosion of the Meech Lake Accord, he left the Progressive Conservative party on 26 June 1990. He sat in Parliament as an Independent member and eventually became one of the first members to join the Bloc Québécois party. He was re-elected in the 1993 under his new party banner.
He is currently a Professor at HEC Montréal where he is also the Director of the Desjardins Centre for Studies in Management of Financial Services Cooperatives.
