Julie Roy fell in love with Montreal's great parks, quality of life and winter season and moved here 10 years ago after living in Paris, Sydney and Finland. She is responsible for mobilization at the David Suzuki Foundation and has worked on waste management in Greater Montreal and on a milkweed planting campaign across Quebec to save the monarch butterfly population. Julie has also mobilized crowds at Oxfam-Quebec, and then at Greenpeace, with the same passion and conviction: citizen power can move mountains!
It is with this conviction that she is involved at the local level, in food bank organizations, on the board of directors of her children's schools and in her neighbourhood citizen committee.
She also sat on the jury of the Maison de l'Innovation Sociale. Her MBA, combined with her knowledge of the field, make her a valuable resource for both organizations and citizens. She is also the co-author of the book "Demain, Le Québec" (Éditions La Presse, 2018), a bestseller at the time of its release, which presents inspiring socio-ecological transition initiatives in the four corners of Quebec.
In 2021, environmental and community issues are driving her to run for municipal office. A consensus builder, she is committed to creating a resilient and welcoming living environment in
Saint-Sulpice, and wishes to contribute fully at the local level as a City Councillor.
Close to the river, Ahuntsic-Cartierville abounds in parks and other green spaces, and high-quality sports facilities. Since Projet Montréal was elected to the administration, our team has accomplished many things with significant and positive impacts on neighborhood life. The team still has many inspiring projects to implement. Our candidates are trusted and experienced people who know how to deliver. Our goals include improving the availability and speed of public transit and active transportation, continuing to make the riverbanks accessible, and supporting revitalization projects in various districts.See more
