The Law Society of Nunavut and the Nunavut Law Foundation are proud to announce the official appointment of Marie Belleau of Iqaluit, NU.
In addition to receiving a fellowship from the International Training Center of Indigenous Peoples and a B.A. in International Studies and Modern Languages from the Université Laval, Ms. Belleau received her civil (L.L.B.) and common law (J.D.) degrees from the University of Ottawa and was called to the Ontario and Nunavut Bar in 2013 after articling with Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP in Ottawa. Ms. Belleau is currently legal counsel for Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. in Iqaluit.
As a newly called member of the Nunavut Bar and a past recipient of the Lucien Ukaliannuk Award, she will no doubt bring invaluable perspectives and provide guidance on how the Foundation can meet its mandate and increase awareness among communities, students and youth across the Territory about opportunities to receive support from the Foundation.
