Originally from the Eastern Townships of Haitian parents, Ericka Alneus has been working in the community and non-profit sector for over ten years. A graduate in philanthropic management from the University of Montreal, Ericka has worked with several organizations including the YWCA, the Carrefour Jeunesse-Emploi Ahuntsic-Bordeaux-Cartierville and Pour 3 Points. Passionate about political and social issues, she has served on the boards of the Conseil de Presse du Québec, Concertation Montréal, Le Carrefour d'Aide aux Nouveaux Arrivants (CANA), Le Portail VIH Sida du Québec and Génération d'idées.
In 2021, Ericka is taking the leap into politics and is running with Projet Montréal for the position of City Councillor in the Etienne Desmarteau district of the Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie borough where she has lived for over 13 years.
The new Projet Montréal team in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie plans to move forward with a political approach still concentrated on the ecological transition, but which will be more inclusive and more focused on citizen participation. Residents are the best experts on their neighborhoods, and it is in collaboration with them that we want to continue the grand shift toward a greener, healthier, cleaner, more friendly city, always on a more human scale.See more
