George Pérusse became a mem­ber of the New Brunswick Judi­cia­ry at age 27. He retired on April 30, 2012 after a 35 year career on the bench. As a mem­ber of the judi­cia­ry, he held var­i­ous posi­tions with the Provin­cial Court Judges Asso­ci­a­tion of New Brunswick, name­ly edu­ca­tion chair­man, sec­re­tary-trea­sur­er and pres­i­dent. For a num­ber of years he also served at the nation­al lev­el as edu­ca­tion chair Atlantic with the Cana­di­an Asso­ci­a­tion of Provin­cial Court Judges. For 14 years he was a mem­ber of the New Brunswick Judi­cial Council.

I joined the Board of Learn­Sphere because I like tak­ing on new chal­lenges. My skills in law and expe­ri­ence with Boards allow me to bring dif­fer­ent points of view to the table as an admin­is­tra­tive direc­tor on the Learn­Sphere Board.”
