2017 Election


Candidate | District 5 - Manoir-des-Trembles-Val-Tétreau

Who is
Mélisa Ferreira?

I was born in Gatineau. For the past five years, I’ve been living in the sector Manoir-des-Trembles with my husband. This is where we’re raising our twin boys. I began my career in the non-profit sector with the ROHSCO, a community social housing organization in Gatineau, and went on to be, between 2011 and 2015, the Community Relations Officer for Nycole Turmel, the former MP for Hull-Aylmer. My experience has led me to gain a solid understanding of poverty and homelessness issues that affect the residents of our city. I have also received words of support from Greg Fergus, the current federal MP for the region, for my work with the population and community groups and organizations. I believe I have the skills and the ability to represent my district well and to make a positive difference in people’s lives and in our neighbourhoods.
