Meghan Fish-Bellefleur – VP of Human Resources
Meghan has over 11 years of human resources (HR) experience including strategic planning, succession planning, recognition programs, recruiting, training and development, diversity program development, HR Law, and occupational health and safety.
It wasn’t until Meghan received her first job out of university that HR became a true passion. Meghan is proudly Metis and was the Co-Chairperson for the Aboriginal Student Association at the University of Ottawa in 2006.

She has delivered countless dream catcher and spirit doll workshops to colleagues and employees and promotes the benefits of a diverse workplace.
Meghan has completed an Honours BA in English Literature with a concentration in Aboriginal Studies from the University of Ottawa, a University Certificate in HR Law for HR Professionals from Osgoode Law School, and is completing a University Certificate in Human Resources Management and Labour Relations from Athabasca University.

She is a huge advocate for the Arthritis Society and keeps active after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Meghan believes that physiotherapy has allowed her to continue doing the things she loves, including keeping up with her 2 beautiful daughters. She is also a big advocate for her community and is a Director on the Heart of Orleans Business Improvement Area (BIA) Board of Directors.
