Heavenly Father, thank you for MPP Collard and her willingness to serve the people of Ottawa Vanier. In these still early days of her serving as an MPP, please bless her with wisdom and insight beyond measure. May her understanding of every issue be crystal clear and may your wisdom fill every decision before her. We pray for Lucille, her family, and her staff; surround them with your blessings of joy and hope for the days ahead in 2022! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Lucille Collard became part of the community of Ottawa-Vanier 35 years ago. Having completed a law degree at the University of Ottawa in 1999, she pursued a public service career as a lawyer, working in such areas as international trade law with the NAFTA Secretariat, administrative and regulatory law with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission and public law with the Federal Court. A mother of four, Lucille has long been very focused on advancing education as an essential building block of success for individuals and communities. Lucille ran for public office and in 2010, was elected as a School Trustee for the Ottawa-Vanier, Ottawa-Rockcliffe sector. She was re-elected in 2014 and 2018, and that same year was chosen by her fellow trustees to serve as Chair of the Board of the Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario.
