THE BISHOP'S FORUM
A Civic Leadership Institute for English-Speaking Youth
Formerly a medical student, Michael currently studies law at Université de Sherbrooke. Michael was the Canadian youth representative for the Board of Directors of Free the Children. He also founded the non-profit, “Operation Bee” to raise awareness of the mass disappearance of bees. Originally from an anglophone community in Montreal, Michael has developed a strong sense of belonging to the francophone community, where he lived in Saguenay for several years.
My Forum Experience
First and foremost, the Bishop’s Forum is a tailored political experience that has significantly changed my perspectives as a member of an anglophone minority in Quebec. The forum was a unique opportunity to network with incredible individuals who came from a broad range of diverse backgrounds that share the same drive for change. Whether it was presenting a health care bill in front of a parliamentary commission or sharing the heartfelt pain of Indigenous community members speaking about the suicide crisis in Northern Quebec, the Bishop’s Forum will open your eyes. Don’t miss this.
