Stéphane Lavoie, Local CoordinatorOntario, Ottawa
They call me the social butterfly! I live in Orleans Ontario, a suburb of Ottawa. I was born and raised on a farm in eastern Ontario, where helping others just became part of my everyday routine. I have been with Global Affairs Canada for the past 15 years, working with employees in Canadian embassies around the world. At the same time, I have been hosting international students since 2001, an experience that has given me a chance to learn about so many different cultures. I have always had – and always will have - a strong passion for helping youth achieve and develop their skills to their fullest!
My favourite things to do are spending quality time with family, friends, socialising, camping, traveling, hiking and cooking food from all around the world with the students!! “Never too old to learn and try” they say!
I am so proud to be part of this beautiful community and being your Local Coordinator where passion meets friendship for life!‹ Back
