Club prize from the Quebec Employers Council 
MONTREAL, April 22, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The chief executive of Rio Tinto 
Alcan, Jacynthe Côté, was awarded the Entrepreneurs Club prize by the Quebec 
Employers Council (QEC), in conjunction with organisation's 2013 Annual 
General Meeting. With this award, which recognises outstanding contributions 
to the economic development of Quebec, Mrs. Côté becomes a member of the 
very select Entrepreneurs Club established in 1986 by the QEC.  
"It is with pride but also great humility that I accept this recognition, said 
Mrs. Côté. I extend my warm thanks to the Council and especially to all 
those I had the chance to meet in my career, and who, in their own way, have 
taught me so much," she said. 
During her acceptance speech, the chief executive of Rio Tinto Alcan 
highlighted the multidimensional nature of success. She recalled the 
importance of being supported at work, at home, while expressing a particular 
empathy for young parents, for whom the work-family balance is a challenge. 
Her advice: perseverance. 
Jacynthe Côté joins some 80 Quebec business leaders that have been awarded 
the Entrepreneurs Club prize by the Quebec Employers Council.
