Michèle Audette


The daughter of a Quebecois father and an Innu mother, Commissioner Audette grew up in an engaged environment at the confluence of two rich cultures, which she proudly represents.

Commissioner Audette entered politics at a young age, first as president of the Quebec Native Women’s Association and then as associate deputy minister for the Status of Women in the government of Quebec.

Commissioner Audette then made the leap to the national scene as president of the Native Women’s Association of Canada. Her tireless efforts have helped to advance the cause of women and families. L’École nationale d’administration publique recently sought her expertise to help create an innovative program on Indigenous public policy.
