A true trailblazer among entrepreneurs in Quebec, Madame Lise Watier built a cosmetics empire by being attuned to women’s needs and aspirations. Former television host, Madame Watier has come to know thousands of women while interrogating herself as to how she and her viewers could reach fulfillment. The answer has resulted in the opening of the Lise Watier Institute in 1968, a space dedicated to beauty and self-esteem and the launch of Lise Watier Cosmetiques in 1972.
In November 2009, Lise Watier launched the Lise Watier Foundation who’s mission is to empower women in need and help them reach their financial autonomy.
Lise Watier was one of the first women to make her mark in business. Her success was such that she was made Member of the Order of Canada in 1991, and was promoted to Officer of the Order of Canada in December 2012. She was also made an Officer of the Ordre National du Québec in 2000 and was promoted to Grande Officière de l’Ordre National du Québec in 2014. She was bestowed an honorary Ph.D from Université du Québec à Montréal in 2010 and from the Université de Montréal in 2014; recognized as a Great Montrealer by the Montreal Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce in 2013; and inducted into the Marketing Hall of Legends in 2010 as a visionary . In June 2017, she received an Honorary Doctorate from Concordia University.
