Biography

Camille graduated with a Bachelor of Civil Law from the Université de Sherbrooke’s Faculty of law in 2019. During law school, Camille volunteered with Lawyers without Borders and played a central role in establishing the university’s first Aboriginal Law Committee. Along with her peers, Camille organized various events to raise awareness about Indigenous realities and mentored Indigenous law students. She worked closely with Kina8at, an Anishinaabe organization, where she assisted with drafting governance policies.

She received her Call to the Barreau du Québec in 2021 after completing her articles at an Immigration and Family law firm in Montreal where she provided services in Spanish, French and English. She then went on to complete a Graduate certificate in Indigenous Nationhood at the University of Victoria in which she took part in various projects involving the revitalization and enactment of Indigenous legal orders, before completing a clerkship at the Federal Court with the Honourable Justice Régimbald.

Outside of work, Camille loves to mountain bike, trail run and ski.
