Marie-Philippe Ouellet is a young professional working in the conservation sector as the Parks Canada. Born and raised in Berthierville (Québec, Canada), she has always lived with one foot in the country and one foot in the city, though it was only when she moved to Quebec City for her studies that she began to truly appreciate and prioritize finding balance between urban life and access to nature. She completed her bachelor’s at the Université Laval, and now holds a degree in public communications with a minor in sustainable tourism. 

Marie-Philippe first began her career at Parks Canada as a student in 2017, working as a core member of the Franklin Expedition team to shed light on the tragic story of the expedition and to amplify local Inuit knowledge on the historical shipwrecks. Since then,  an amazing array of opportunities within the agency has come her way, from engaging with Canadians on northern national park experiences, to building partnerships and collaborations in the international conservation field, and most recently, serving as a lead organizer and host of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Global Youth Summit in April 2021.  

At the core of all of Marie-Philippe’s work is her passion for empowering young people to meaningfully participate in the conservation sector. She is a proud Student On Ice 2018 Alumni and an Ocean Bridge 2019 Alumni.   

In 2021, Marie-Philippe received the Micah Messant Young Professional Award of Excellence from the Canadian Parks Council in recognition of her  leadership in building the first ever IUCN Global Youth Summit.. 

As a dreamer who pushes boundaries, Marie-Philippe is constantly following her passions and putting new projects in motion. You are most likely to find her somewhere in the great outdoors, hiding beside her camera, taking in the sunset, or laughing with friends and family.
