Jamie Fortin

Manager of Sustainable Transportation

Jaime’s father is Anishinaabe/French and her mother is Syrian. She grew up on a small reserve on Treaty 9 Territory in Northern Ontario called Chapleau Cree First Nation, but her family is originally from Michipocoten First Nation.

Jaime completed her undergrad from Trent University in Indigenous Studies and Gender Studies, and she is working on finishing her final year of Law School at Queen’s University.

Jaime grew up surrounded by nature and enjoys being on the land. She is passionate about Indigenous rights both within the Canadian context and internationally.

Jamie previously worked at Brunswick House First Nation in the housing sector. In this field she was able to see first-hand the gaps affecting Indigenous communities.  She is excited to be working for Indigenous Clean Energy in the Bringing it Home Program and on the new Electric Vehicle Program. Jaime is looking forward to meeting new people  from all walks of life, as well as to being able to learn and extend her knowledge from the incredible staff.
