Isabelle Mignault was born in Saint-Pascal de Kamouraska in 1975. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in political science in 1998 and a Master’s degree in policy analysis (Laval University) in 2002.
Over the past 12 years, she has acquired considerable political experience at the provincial and federal levels. She started with the youth commission of the Liberal Party of Quebec and went on to work with the teams of Daniel Johnson and Jean Charest in the National Assembly.
Having acquired political experience on the provincial scene, Ms. Mignault continued her career with the federal government. Between 2002 and 2004, she worked successively as a special advisor with responsibility for La Francophonie, for the Secretary of State (Africa, Francophonie, Latin America) and as a special advisor to the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-food Canada. Since early 2004, she has returned to the Quebec government as a policy advisor to the office of the Quebec Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food.
Ms. Mignault is eager to enter politics for several reasons: the role that the Liberal Party wishes to allocate to the regions, the atmosphere of partnership and cooperation now established in Ottawa, and her own profound wish to contribute to the speedy development of the riding.
