Prior to his election, Auger taught at Collège Laflèche in Trois-Rivières, and was also a coordinator at the same college in tourism and hotel management.[1] He was also the owner of a local snow removal company, a hockey coach for several local clubs in several divisions and a member of the Association des restaurateurs du Québec and the Association des hôteliers du Québec.
