Martel has a Bachelor's Degree in administration. He was selected as both secretary-treasurer and director general of the Nicolet-Yamaska Regional County Municipality (MRC) in 1994, and continues to hold the first position as of 2009. He has also been the responsable administratif for the Centre local de développement (CLD) in Nicolet-Yamaska since 1998.[1] Between 1999 and 2003, he was president of l’Association des directeurs généraux des MRC du Québec.[2] He has also taken part in a local campaign against cannabis.[3]

He resigned as president of the local Parti Québécois association in April 2008, arguing that his civic duties were inconsistent with partisan political activity.[4]
