Sophie Thiébaut has lived in the neighbourhood of Saint-Henri since 2003. Since being first elected in November 2009 her work has focused on land use planning as well as garbage collection.
Prior to her 2009 election, Ms Thiébaut worked with several community groups in the South-West borough for 8 years: CEDA, Carrefour d’éducation populaire de Pointe-Saint-Charles and the Table de quartier Concertation Ville-Émard–Côte Saint-Paul, where she coordinated the revitalisation program Operation Galt. She is therefore particularly involved in the Turcot Mobilisation, which she helped create.
Ms Thiébaut has a 9-year-old daughter who attends a neighbourhood school. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Project Coordination and Community Organizations (Paris) and a Masters-level certificate in Social Economy (UQAM).
Reelected in 2013, she closely follows the development of west Saint-Henri and Canada Malting, the Lionel-Groulx sector as well as the future of eastern Pointe-Saint-Charles (Bridge sector). She also works on the issues of social development and housing, as well as on environment related projects (éco-quartier program, local sustainable development plan, food waste collection).
As acting president of the Comité Consultatif d’Urbanisme (Urban planning consultation committee), she follows building project requests in Griffintown, Saint-Henri, Pointe-Saint-Charles et Petite-Bourgogne district closely.
Sophie Thiébaut sits on the Social Development and Montreal Diversity Committee at City Hall and is Projet Montréal’s Social development critic.
