2017 EPC Nominee: Amber Beaulieu

Amber B EPC

 

Amber Beaulieu of Portage La Prairie, MB, was nominated by Kyle Laquette

Nominator, Kyle, says that ever since he met Amber, she has always had a very diplomatic approach to a way of living life based on First Nations culture and their rights as people. Him, and many people who know her, have a deep respect for her ability to use politics and human rights as a tool for solutions in everyday situations, which makes her an Everyday Political Citizen.

Amber has worked for both Elections Canada and Elections Manitoba as an Aboriginal and Youth Community Relations Officer, where she educated the community on democracy and why it is important to vote and how they could vote. She also volunteered in the Liberal Biennial Convention in Winnipeg in May 2016, and is now a Youth Reconciliation Leader for Canadian Roots Exchange. Through this, Amber facilitates events that educate people on the realities of Indigenous life and shares knowledge about Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures to promote reconciliation in Canada.
