First posts : September 7, 2010

Robert Savignac is a Montréal native. He lives in Canada. He considers himself a bilingual North American.

Business manager, and president of a network made up of 10 bookstores: Robert is the publisher of 159 works. Trained accountant, he was VP Finance for an important translation firm in Toronto. He carried out many management and business organization mandates. He also drew up many communication plans for the Web.

He suffered a burnout at the end of the 90s, then chose a new career path in information technology. He created management applications for various bars and restaurants. This second career as an administrator in Montréal's Gay Village meant that on a daily basis, he dealt with setbacks, caused by prostitution, drug addiction, alcohol, and compulsive gambling.

These experiences and his work in the field were a major turning point in his life. In the years that followed, he became an ardent and passionate advocate of equity, harm reduction and reintegration.

The developer of Stigmabase rejects any nationalist and sovereigntist rethorics and their obsession rooted in xenophobia and in the past.

For him ... The world does not need more borders.

Stigmabase is proudly Canadian

To those who have been there and
