Candidate for Saint-Michel
Wendy Olivier was born in Montreal and is the eldest of a family of three children. Her parents, who are from Haiti, bought a family home in Saint-Michel where they have lived for over thirty years. She still lives in Saint-Michel with her three children.
Ms Olivier obtained her university degrees in teaching and in social adaptation at UQAM. She has worked for many years at the STM, the Commission scolaire de Montréal, the Commission scolaire des Samares, and, for the past five years, at the Lucien-Guilbault School, located in the Saint-Michel district.
An entrepreneur as well, she has built a business that offers tutoring services to help young people with their academic learning. Since 2018, Collaboration School Support Service has offered personalised follow-up to young people at the primary and secondary levels. In 2019, she also created a homework help group with neighbourhood youth at Lucien-Guilbault School, in partnership with the Centre Lasallien.
Representing the neighbourhood, its reality, and its citizens are one of her top priorities.
