Marie-Philippe Ouellet

I’m pursuing a Bachelor of Public Communications at Université Laval. I’ve always lived my life with one foot in the country and one in the city, but when I moved to Quebec City, I finally found the perfect blend of city life, water, and wilderness. As a dreamer who pushes boundaries, I’m constantly following my passions and putting new projects in motion. When I first started with Parks Canada, I couldn’t yet imagine the array of opportunities that would soon come my way. Among other things, working with the Franklin Expedition Outreach Team last summer was what really heightened my interest in the North. Being a member of the Northern Engagement Team still feels a little surreal, a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I’m particularly inspired by the role that connectivity and community play in the North. I’m also excited to share my experience, and to work towards developing projects that can help make a difference.
