Enthusiastic and rigorous, Catherine is known for her ability to synthesize and popularize data, which allows her to eloquently promote the findings of her research and the interests of her clients. She is particularly interested in mandates with social implications.
Prior to joining TACT, Catherine worked as a research analyst for a polling firm serving a diverse portfolio of public affairs clients. Her ease in qualitative research is revealed as much through the facilitation of interviews as through the remarkable quality of her deliverables. Passionate about politics, Catherine has been at the heart of the Leger political team during municipal, provincial and federal election campaigns.
With a bachelor's degree in international relations and international law, Catherine has deepened her knowledge of Indigenous issues through her studies in Norway and work experience in Nunavik. Her master's degree in political science allowed her to develop a strong expertise in Quebec politics. Her dissertation on the Reception of Nunavik Inuit Autonomist Claims by Sovereignist Parties in Quebec was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and won a prize from the Maurice-Séguin Foundation.
