After completing his PhD at Cornell University in 1954, Tremblay held leading academic and administrative positions at Université Laval, in professional and research organizations and in national academies. For his contributions to the study of Quebec society and cultural life, he won the Quebec Literary Competition (1965), Innis-Gérin Medal (1979), Centenary Medal of the Royal Society of Canada (1982) and Molson Prize (1987). He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1971 and named an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1980. His articles and books — numbering well over 200 — include Famille et parenté en Acadie (1971), Communities and Culture in French Canada (1973, with Gerald L. Gold), L’Identité québécoise en péril (1983) and Immigrants in the Canadian Labour Force (1989, with Shirley Seward). In 1992, the Society for Applied Anthropology in Canada established the Weaver-Tremblay Prize to honour Tremblay and a deceased colleague, Sally Weaver. In 1995, Tremblay was named a Grand Officer of the National Order of Quebec.
