The gyronny gold and blue pattern of the field of the shield comes from the arms of Charlesbourg, Quebec, the ancestral home of the armiger's forbear,  Gilles Bourée dit Lépine. It also mirrors the geographic pattern of the town's lands. The two lions in the Arms and Crest recall the ancestor's native Normandy, in France. The fleur-de-lis refers to the French roots of Marie de Bellehache, to royal France and to the calling of Gilles Bourée as a soldier in the French army.

The bundle of sticks (bourrée in French) refers to the origins of the family name, originally given to people who worked as bundlers of wood. The locomotive wheel designates Mr. Bourret's career as an employee of the Canadian Pacific Railway.

The Latin phrase of the Motto means “I grow through learning and perseverance”.

The lion's head in the first badge recalls the arms of the Duchy of Normandy, homeland of the armiger's ancestors. A lion also appears in Mr. Bourret's arms granted in 2000. The swords illustrate the military career of his ancestor Gilles Bourée dit Lépine. The fleurs-de-lis crown honours the French origins of Marie de Bellehache, wife of Gilles Bourée dit Lépine and daughter of Pierre de Bellehache, and recalls royal France. The swords in saltire evoke the arms of de Bellehache.

The standard combines several other elements of the grants made to Mr. Bourret. The crowned red lion holding the standard recalls the lion found in the arms of Normandy and of royal France. The compartment of fleurs-de-lis and maple leaves honour Mr. Bourret's French ancestry and his Canadian nationality.

The lion's head and the fleur-de-lis of the second badge are taken from the arms, while the crown is taken from the armiger's first badge.
