Mutual assistance and sharing are the principal values of lawyer Francisco Couto. He has two guiding mottoes: “Alone, we go faster, together we go further” and “Be the change you wish for in the world”. Viewing every day as an opportunity to learn something new, Me Couto believes his career has been one of fortunate chance, as he has been motivated more by challenges than by a steadily rising career path.
However, it’s impossible to ignore that he co-founded a national association of jurists, was co-champion of the Canadian government’s workplace fundraising campaign for charities in Montreal in 2018, as well as champion of the national community of managers for the federal government in the Quebec region. A person of great integrity and responsibility, and curious by nature, Me Couto enjoys giving back to the community and sharing his expertise. Éducaloi’s mission appeals to him because he believes strongly that a civil society that is aware of its rights and obligations is the best guarantee of a health democracy.
