Early life and education
Hartt was born in Montreal, Quebec to Maurice Hartt, a Quebec MNA and MP, and brother of the late Joel Hartt (1940-2009). He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1958, a Master of Arts degree in 1961, and a Bachelor of Civil Law degree in 1963 from McGill University. He was called to the Quebec Bar in 1965 and created a Queen's Counsel in 1984.
From 1962 to 1963, he was a lecturer at Sir George Williams University. From 1965 to 1967 and again from 1972 to 1981, he was a lecturer at McGill University. He also taught at the Labour College of Canada (now affiliated with Athabasca University) in 1963, 1964, and 1965.
In 1965, he joined Stikeman Elliott. He left in 1990. From 1985 to 1988, he was the Deputy Minister in the Department of Finance under Finance Minister Michael Wilson. From 1989 to 1990, he was the Chief of Staff for Brian Mulroney. In 2013, Hartt joined Norton Rose Fulbright.
From 1990 to 1996, he was chairman and CEO of Camdev Corporation (formerly Campeau Corporation), a real estate corporation. He later became chairman of Salomon Smith Barney Canada and was Chairman of Citigroup Global Markets Canada until their departure from the Canadian market in 2008.
In November 2016, he held a fundraiser at Norton Rose for Conservative Party of Canada leadership candidate Kellie Leitch. The fundraiser was held shortly after Leitch sent an email congratulating Donald Trump for winning the 2016 United States presidential election and saying the "elites are out of touch."
