About

Mary Clare Massicotte

My role as a consultant is enhanced by my program management, leadership, strategic planning, coordination, and organizational skills. My career spans working with all levels of Government, including Indigenous governments. ​With the Federal Government, I had the privilege of working within several departments including Public Safety Canada, Health Canada, Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, and Shared Services Canada.

I am passionate about learning and helping others to develop through training. Participants in my programs report that they enjoy my training and facilitation style as I combine my enthusiasm with my sense of humour.  As an adult learner myself, I found that the times that I learned best were when I was able to see myself doing something. As an adult educator, I incorporate that into my training and facilitation sessions.

 

I am currently writing my thesis to achieve a Master of Education (Educational Leadership) through Vancouver Island University (VIU). I recently completed the VIU - Online Learning and Teaching (graduate) Diploma. Additionally, I have a Bachelor of General Studies (BGS), Applied Studies through Athabasca University, specializing in Adult Education, as well as an Instructor Diploma (Adult Education) from Vancouver Community College, British Columbia - Ministry of Advanced Education.
