Annamie Paul Biography

A daughter of Caribbean immigrants, she is fluent in French, Catalan and Spanish. She holds a master's in Public Affairs from Princeton University and a law degree from the University of Ottawa. She has worked as an advisor to Hague International Criminal Court and NGOs, including the Climate Infrastructure Partnership (CLIP), Higher Education Alliance for Refugees (HEAR) and Institute for Integrated Transitions. She was also the founder of the Canadian Centre for Political Leadership, a non-partisan charity dedicated to training women of underrepresented minorities to run for elected office.

She became the Federal Green Party leader on October 3, 2020, after a leadership election was called following the stepping down of long-time leader Elizabeth May.

"I believe that we can do extraordinary things if we can get the political leadership to match the courage and sacrifice the public has demonstrated during this year in Canada."

- Annamie Paul
