Stacey is privileged to have worked with- or for – newcomers to Canada for 17 years. Her specific interest in immigration policy began when she was an International Student Recruitment Officer for the University of Toronto in 2006 and had the opportunity to understand how immigration pathways function. In 2014 Stacey acquired her accreditation as a Registered Immigration Consultant of Canada and in 2017 Stacey and her family relocated from Southern Ontario to Thunder Bay. Stacey is now a self-proclaimed Thunder Bay convert and ACTIVELY promotes all the region has to offer (food scene, affordable lifestyle, food scene, outdoor activities, food scene…)! Becoming the NWO LIP Coordinator has been the most interesting role thus far in her career, and she is just getting started.
