Isabelle Michaud [1st substitute]

Status of Women Committee

CISSS des Laurentides

I am an assistant-head nurse in the emergency department at Argenteuil, have been a nurse clinician for over 18 years in Montreal and at the CISSS des Laurentides for 7 years. I have also been a union representative in Argenteuil since January. The pandemic made me realize just how much women have to balance work and family. This is far from easy for women who have been shouldering the health network for years. Our practices are no longer vocations, but rather professions that deserve proper recognition.

We work in difficult conditions. We provide care and continually find solutions to make up for different problems in our health system. We must denounce violence against women. I want women in the network to feel safe and to all be treated equally. I would like to be able to help our professionals get a better salary and obtain working conditions that enable them to be fulfilled.

And that is why I am submitting my candidacy for the provincial Status of Women Committee.
