CAIJ team

The CAIJ team is there for you

Over 45 employees at the service of more than 30,000 members

Monitoring and anticipating changes in the practice of law takes energetic people who have your professional interests at heart. Feel free to draw on their knowledge, as well as their tools and services, either online, by telephone, in the co-working library, at the office, in the courthouse or at home. Our team focuses on three areas of expertise: customer experience, legal information and technology.

CAIJ management

The management team pools its wide range of expertise and experience to guide CAIJ’s professionals in developing the best products and services for members.

Mtre Nancy J. Trudel, M.B.A., Executive Director

” The modernization of Quebec justice is based on the pooling of the ideas and resources of CAIJ, its members and its partners. “

Nancy J. Trudel is quite a pragmatic lawyer. For her, law and business administration go hand-in-hand in terms of ensuring access to quality justice. Member of the Barreau du Québec since 1997 and the Ordre des administrateurs agréés du Québec since 2014, she holds a law degree from the Université de Montréal and a double degree in the Executive MBA program at UQAM in partnership with Université de Paris-Dauphine.

Daring to be different has exposed Mtre Trudel to a variety of issues and files. Her inclusive, comprehensive approach stems from her desire to defend all viewpoints. After working as a private-practice lawyer and then a manager in a damage insurance brokerage firm, she ran the Barreau du Québec’s Registry Office from 2006 to 2016 and managed projects promoting public protection.

From the outset, MtreTrudel knew that her practice would not be a traditional one. Moreover, by seeking out the right decisions and actions, she has rapidly taken CAIJ to new heights since becoming Executive Director in 2016. She oversees the implementation of the organization’s strategic and action plans to ensure the satisfaction of members and the optimum use of resources. Mtre Trudel mobilizes the entire team to work toward keeping the group strong by consolidating its surveillance and the synergy of its three areas of expertise to ensure that the CAIJ remains the guardian of legal knowledge.

Mr. Dave Hinse, Director—Information Technology

“ Our aim is to have a technological infrastructure providing our members with effective, reliable and secure tools and services. ”

Dave Hinse has over 20 years’ experience in the IT services sector, as well as a proven track record for driving the growth of start-ups, SMBs and large enterprises. An entrepreneur himself, he began designing software, hardware and websites before IT professions even existed. A strong proponent of new technology, he feels that utility and user friendliness take precedence over methods. He firmly believes that every technical problem has its solution.

With his keen eye for detail, Mr. Hinse strives to master all aspects of SaaS (Software as a Service), cloud computing and platform development. His efforts were so successful that the company Primonics Inc., where he served on the management team for over 10 years, was purchased by the U.S. company Securus Technologies. He then joined CloudOps as Director of Managed Services and Operations, and more recently Baseline Telematics as Director of Software and Cloud. At CAIJ, Mr. Hinse is responsible for managing all technological aspects for meeting members’ changing needs.
