As a businessman, he was the CEO and founder of the “L. Lachance & Associés Inc.  (L. Lachance & Co. Inc.), one of the major insurance brokerage agencies in Québec.

Presently, he is the Managing Director of “Entreprises Lachance Inc.,” (Companies Lachance Inc.), the leading residential construction firm in the Quebec region of Estrie, Canada.

Socially, he was the CEO and founder of the Sacred-Heart Middle School in Sherbrooke; the president of the Federation of the insurance brokers of Quebec, and the president of ACT Canada, an association of Christian professionals, among several other offices.



In 1989, at the request of his children, he publishes a first book entitled “FOR THE HAPPINESS OF MY OWN (42 ingredients to reach the summit)”, reissued in 2003.

In 1996, HE WAS INSPIRED TO WRITE. Since then, 3 volumes of “FOR THE HAPPINESS OF MY OWN, MY CHOSEN ONES – JESUS” have been published from 1999 to 2002. He also has written 4 other books entitled:

Thousands of people have witnessed to the transformation they experienced in reading and meditating the volumes of “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones – Jesus”.

Leandre Lachance has been spiritually counseled by two priests: Fr. David Ngondo, and presently by the Abbot Guy Giroux.

"I believe to have been inspired to write", declares Leandre, adding: "I have the conviction that every person who prays and enters into an attitude of listening to the Lord receives inspirations ".

The immense Peace that he was filled with was the key confirmation that impelled him to continue writing and subsequently to hold conferences.

He believes that it partakes in the signs of the end of times. We live in a period where the grace is overflowing in every one who attunes oneself to the Holy Spirit.

Since the publication of the first volume in 1999, he has held almost 100 conferences per year, throughout many countries: Canada, France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxemburg, Italy, Lebanon, Latvia, and Yugoslavia.  He also facilitates parochial retreats.

Thought of the Day


Thoughts 2B_10: My child, your behaviour before a happy or an unhappy event allows you to see whether you acted as a man of faith or as a man of the world. If you see that you behaved as a man of faith, you must give thanks to the Father, by praising and thanking Him for this great favour that he gives you, of being a witness of His action through you.


Today's Thought of the Day comes from the book For the Happiness of my own, My Chosen Ones – Jesus, by Léandre Lachance, Volume 2, number 61..
