Emmanuel Dubourg (born December 26, 1958) is a Quebec politician, chartered accountant and teacher. He was the Member of National Assembly for the riding of Viau from 2007 until 2013. Dubourg is the third black MNA to be a member of the Quebec Liberal Party. Quebec's first black MNA was Jean Alfred, as a member of the Parti Québécois, elected in 1976. On November 25, 2013 he was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in a by-election to become the Liberal Member of Parliament for the Montreal riding of Bourassa.

Early life and education[edit]

Born in Saint-Marc, Haiti, he emigrated to Canada in 1974.

Dubourg obtained a Master of Business Administration at Université du Québec à Montréal and has been a member of the Ordre des comptables agréés du Québec since 1987.

Career[edit]

He was a teacher at Université du Québec à Montréal, Université du Québec en Outaouais and CEGEP Montmorency. Dubourg has been honoured with several awards and citations for his work over the years, including the Governor General's Medal, the Innovation and Excellence prize from Revenue Canada in 1992 and the Black History Month Award in 2006 for his work in the Black Community.

Political career[edit]

Dubourg won his seat in the 2007 Quebec Provincial Election, succeeding former Liberal MNA William Cusano. After the election, was named the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Employment and Social Solidarity, a portfolio held by Sam Hamad. He was re-elected in the 2008 and 2012 general elections.

He resigned on August 9, 2013 to run for the Liberal Party of Canada's nomination in the riding of Bourassa. He was elected on November 25, 2013 with 47% of the votes. He now serves as the National Revenue Critic for the Liberal Party of Canada.
