Marie-Pier’s passion for helping others is evident in her extensive social justice background. While completing her law degree, Marie-Pier also specialized in international human rights and development, and this interest in access to justice and international law led her to article at the Office of Staff Legal Assistance at the United Nations Office in Nairobi, Kenya. This opportunity provided Marie-Pier with direct experience in labour and employment law as she represented UN staff members around the world in labour disputes and disciplinary matters before the United Nations Dispute Tribunals and the UN Appeals Tribunal. Upon her return to Canada, Marie-Pier’s practice grew to also include assisting those with sensitive immigration issues such as stays of removals, humanitarian and compassionate applications.
In her spare time, Marie-Pier maintains a blog on Canadian literature and is working to complete a B.A. in history. She has also became somewhat of an accidental mountaineer by following her husband on some of his adventures, and has successfully climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), Ben Nevis (UK) and Mt. Elbert (Colorado) and several mountains in the Adirondacks (so far!).
