A look behind the Chapiteaux curtain…

Chapiteaux du Monde was founded in 1989 by Richard Bouthillier, one of the pioneering talents behind Cirque du Soleil. Mr. Bouthillier honed his skills working as the Cirque’s technical director for more than ten years before launching Chapiteaux du Monde in Baie-Saint-Paul. Cirque du Soleil was his first client. Over the years, the company undertook numerous projects around the world, building the name it enjoys today as a leader in the canvas, canopy, and tent manufacturing industry.

We strive to offer our clients only the very best, continuously seeking out cutting-edge techniques and materials to create products that meet the most stringent quality standards.

In December 2012, with our 25th anniversary just around the corner, we embarked on a fresh chapter in our history with the arrival of a new owner, Richard Girard. Mr. Girard boasts extensive experience in event management, business development, and the client experience. His arrival is a golden opportunity to give the company a new, more dynamic image that better translates our commitment to working closely with our clients, suppliers, and dedicated employees to provide unmatched customer service and attention to detail.
