Audette’s engagement has been recognized by several prizes, notably the 2014 Woman of the Year Award bestowed by the Montreal Council of Women.

The daughter of a Quebecois father and an Innu mother, Michèle Audette grew up in an engaged environment at the confluence of two rich cultures that she is proud of.

She was propelled onto the political scene at a young age, first as president of the Native Women's Association of Quebec, then as associate deputy minister of the Quebec Government’s Ministry of Women’s Affairs.

Audette then made the leap onto the national scene as president of Native Women's Association of Canada, where her tireless work helped advance the status of women and families. Recognizing her expertise, Quebec’s École nationale d’administration publique – the province’s university for public administration – recently commissioned her skills with a view to creating an innovative program on Indigenous public policy.

Michèle Audette’s engagement has been acknowledged by several prizes, notably the 2014 Woman of the Year Award bestowed by the Montreal Council of Women. She is also a recipient of the 2012 Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal.
