Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin was born in Buckingham, and went on to earn a master's degree in regional development from the Université du Québec en Outaouais, where he studied the historical evolution of the relationship between the Outaouais and Ottawa. He spent years working with his community before being elected Municipal Councillor for Buckingham in 2009, and later Mayor of Gatineau on November 3, 2013. In 2017, he was re-elected to that position, at which time he also took over as chair of the Caucus des maires des grandes villes de l'Union des municipalités du Québec, a strategic role aimed at influencing the relationship between municipalities and the Government of Quebec.
Since becoming mayor, he has focused on a series of investments to modernize the bicycle paths and the municipal library network, as well as on implementing a vision of land use planning to improve the quality of life in neighbourhoods and make our communities more sustainable.
