Here are the current board members:

Josée Thibault – President A Franco-Ontarian from Northern Ontario, I moved to Ottawa in 1999 to attend university.  I have lived in the Convent Glen – Orléans Wood area since 2004. I have two children and a dog with whom I am often out and about walking, biking, or cross-country skiing. I joined the CGOWCA Board of Directors to get more involved in this wonderful community and support local initiatives.

Daniel LamotheTreasurer I have been a resident of Orléans since 1979 and seen it grow and develop incredibly in the past decades. My spouse and I moved to Convent Glen in 1997 and have lived here since, enrolling our three children at École des Voyageurs and exploring the many parks and green spaces. I was an active member of school councils for 19 years, and I am an avid cyclist and music festival volunteer. I am very curious about the impact of the stage 2 Light Rail Transit expansion on our community; I joined the CGOWCA Board of Directors to learn more about this impact and to represent my neighbours and friends.

Matthieu Gagnon – Director I was born and raised in Orléans. In my 20s, I moved around a bit while working as an exploration geologist in the gold industry. I moved back to Orléans around 2010 and moved to Convent Glen in 2018. I am a dad of two girls and I want them to grow up in a thriving community where they will have freedom and independence. On my free time, you will often see me in the parks around Voyageurs or running errands on my cargo bike. I also enjoy board games and run a weekly Dungeons and Dragon campaign.
