Angelique Belcourt

This profile was provided by the candidate.

Angelique was born in Toronto and spent her formative years in Perkinsfield and Midland. She is currently in her Master's of Arts in Adult Education and Community Development.

She prides herself in being a young Métis woman, and her family's connection to the Historic Georgian Bay Métis Community. She is trilingual in French, English and Spanish along with enjoying learning Michif and Anishnaabemowin.

Angelique’s professional career has included work in programs within the Guelph Wellington Family and Child Services, the Métis Nation of Ontario and Laurentian University.

Angelique has worked as an Indigenous Addictions Outreach Counsellor and Case Manager, where she was introduced to the very real systematic realities of socio and economic barriers presented to individuals in all walks of life.

This evoked a passion for Angelique to recognize that institutional change needs to happen to support individuals and that any and all persons should have access to a government that recognizes their value and invests in their well-being.

With a volunteering background in community-led initiatives, Angelique believes we should be working hand in hand with all individuals to address their concerns and needs. It's time for constituents who have MPs who go above and beyond to advocate for them.

Constituents should know they can rely on their MP for their everyday needs, and one that actively maintain and values their relationship with their community.

Change is possible, the future is bright, and there can be demonstrable change for the evolving realities of residents of both the rural and cities of Simcoe-North. 

Ultimately, Angelique understands the diversity of our riding. She believes she is well-rounded to represent the experiences of those in her constituency and holds herself accountable to her Indigenous ancestry to guiding her to walk in a good way in all her relationships. MP's should not speak for people, but to speak with them and ensure their voices are heard.
