New President of the National Assembly

Montarville MNA Nathalie Roy was acclaimed as the new President of the National Assembly on November 30, 2022. Replacing outgoing President Francois Paradis, Ms. Roy becomes only the second woman to serve in the position in nearly 230 years of parliamentarianism.

Ms. Roy attended Universite de Sherbrooke, where she obtained a multidisciplinary certificate in 1984 and a bachelor's degree in law in 1988. She was called to the Barreau du Quebec in 1990 and practiced as a lawyer in the Lamarre, Laporte et Darveau firm.

After more than two decades working in radio and television as a host, journalist, anchor, news editor, editor-in-chief and producer, Ms. Roy returned to private practice of law for two years, from 2010 to 2012, as a lawyer specializing in penal and criminal law, before entering politics on the advice of her colleague, Jean Lapierre.
