Lord, today we pray for MPP Lucille Collard. Thank you for her dedication to education and her participation in the political system. We pray that she will be a blessing to the people of her riding and to all the citizens of Ontario. We remember her children and pray that they will experience your love in a way that will bring them joy. Guide and help Ms. Collard as she works to make our province a better place. May she know that she is treasured by you and that your unconditional love belongs to her. You are her constant guide and companion. (Psalm 136:3)
Lucille Collard became part of the community of Ottawa-Vanier 35 years ago. Having completed a law degree at the University of Ottawa in 1999, she pursued a public service career as a lawyer, working in such areas as international trade law with the NAFTA Secretariat, administrative and regulatory law with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission and public law with the Federal Court. A mother of four, Lucille has long been very focused on advancing education as an essential building block of success for individuals and communities.

She was re-elected in 2014 and 2018, and that same year was chosen by her fellow trustees to serve as Chair of the Board of the Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario.
