Suzanne Valiquet was first appointed to the Police Services Board in February of 2015, and has been re-appointed for a further three year term by Order-in-Council of the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. Her term now expires on 18 May 2020. “The Board is very happy to have Suzanne continue for another term. Her enthusiasm, knowledge, and commitment makes our Board stronger. She also offers a unique and valuable perspective as the only woman and francophone on the Board,” stated Chair Eli El-Chantiry.
“Actively involved in the Board’s committees, I have in the last two years acquired significant experience that will allow me to be more engaged in important Ottawa Police files such as the Gender and Diversity Audits,” stated Member Valiquet. “I am honoured to have been reappointed for another 3-year term to serve the residents of our City.” 
A graduate of social communications, and for more than 20 years, Suzanne has voluntarily provided marketing, promotional and fundraising expertise to organizations such as the Wabano Centre, Assumption Catholic School, the Vanier Community, Ottawa-Carleton Catholic School Board and La Nouvelle Scène Gilles Desjardins.
