Biography

Valérie Plante, Mairesse de Montréal, cheffe de Projet Montréal 

Après des études en anthropologie, en muséologie, en intervention multiethnique et une longue expérience de terrain au sein de plusieurs organismes communautaires, dont la Fondation Filles d’action, Valérie Plante a fait le saut dans l’arène politique en 2013. Sa force : rallier les gens grâce à sa passion et sa vision progressiste et rassembleuse. D’abord élue conseillère du district de Sainte-Marie, elle est devenue cheffe de Projet Montréal en 2016.

Profondément habitée par la démocratie participative, Valérie Plante propose une vision audacieuse pour Montréal. Elle s’intéresse notamment aux questions liées au transport, à l’aménagement, à l’économie et à l’environnement et se préoccupe des écarts qui existent entre les quartiers dans ces domaines. 

Elle a été élue mairesse de Montréal lors de l’élection municipale de novembre 2017. 

Valérie Plante, Mayor of Montreal, Projet Montréal Leader

First elected as city councillor in Saint-Marie district in 2013, Projet Montréal members chose Valérie Plante to lead the party in 2016. Her contagious passion and energy has helped her rally people around her progressive vision. Deeply concerned about participatory democracy, Valérie Plante has a bold plan for Montreal centered on increased access to public transit, better urban planning and public services, the economy and the environment. Her commitment is to bridge the gap on these issues for all 19 city boroughs.

Before jumping into the political arena in 2013, Valérie Plante studied anthropology, museology, multiethnic intervention, and was actively involved with numerous community groups, such as Fondation Filles d’action.

She became Mayor of Montreal on November 5, 2017.
