Dominique Anglade is a Canadian politician, who was elected to the National Assembly of Quebec in a by-election on November 9, 2015.[1] She represents the electoral district of Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne as a member of the Quebec Liberal Party.[1]

Anglade was formerly associated with the Coalition Avenir Québec. She ran as a CAQ candidate in Fabre in the 2012 election, losing to Gilles Ouimet, and served as the president of the CAQ from 2012 to 2013.[2] She left that position to become CEO of Montreal International.[3]

She cited objections to the CAQ's positions on ethnic identity and immigration for her decision to leave the party and run for the Liberals.[2] She is the daughter of academic Georges Anglade.[3]

Anglade holds an MBA from HEC Montréal and a Bachelor of Industrial Engineering from the École Polytechnique de Montréal.[4]

Since 2016 she has been the Minister of Economic Development, Innovation and Export Trade.
