March 17th: Coffee Chats with Tiffany-Lee Norris Parent, Municipal councillor for the Touraine district (11)
Tiffany-Lee Norris Parent, Municipal councillor for the Touraine district (11), will join us on Thursday, March 17th at 10:00 am for our Coffee Chats. Join the conversation!
Tiffany-Lee Norris Parent was born in Gatineau, where she currently lives. She always wanted to make a positive impact on her community. Coming from a family where community involvement is deeply rooted in their identity, she was always encouraged to help the people around her.
This early involvement also opened her eyes to many challenges and injustices throughout society, such as the low proportion of women in politics, the issues about racism and discrimination, and the growing cynicism of many people towards politics. Those are some of the issues that she wants to address during her political term.
Since November 2021, Ms. Norris Parent is the city councillor of the district of Touraine, for the city of Gatineau. While she exercises her duties as city councillor, she is also continuing her studies at Athabasca University, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Political Sciences. Following her election, Ms. Norris Parent was nominated to multiple positions across the committees and commissions of the City of Gatineau. She is President of the Living-Together and Immigration Consultation Table, Co-President of the Youth Commission, and member of the Recreation, Sports and, Community Development Commission.
