Artists are special souls of the world. It gives me great pleasure to know that what I do every day can contribute to the well-being of artists – and I take it seriously.

A Great Space to Work
The Council encourages and is committed to a respectful workplace where all employees enjoy an environment free of discrimination, harassment, abuse of power and sexual misconduct.
It’s a pivotal moment to be at Canada Council, and working in Indigenous arts in Canada. I am honoured to be part of an organization that is deeply committed to advancing the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples of this land.
