Manon discovered her purpose at a very young age. “I remember at 8 years old while working on a collage and it hit me. I couldn’t understand in my head why women didn’t have the same equal voting rights. It was then that I knew this would be my calling”, said Manon.

Manon Tremblay went on to publish 43 books, and paved her career in Canadian politics and more specifically shared an interest in gender and sexual minority groups within the parliamentary system. She has dedicated her career to her research, a well-versed professor with many accomplishments at the University of Ottawa within the Faculty of Social Sciences. “I am very proud of all my publications, they have allowed me to reflect different stages of my professional career, every book is very precious to me.” said Manon. “Working at the university of Ottawa has allowed me to do what I do best, research and write to ultimately publish several books in the course of my career” she said.

A few of her recent thought-provoking publications written as author or in collaboration with various authors include but are not limited to:

  • LGBQ Legislators in Canadian Politics: Out to Represent
  • 100 Questions about Women and Politics
  • Genre et professionnalisation de la politique municipal
  • Quebec Women and Legislative Representation
  • Des femmes au Parlement : une stratégie féministe
  • The Palgrave Handbook of Gender, Sexuality, and Canadian Politics,

It comes as no surprise that the Canadian Study of Parliament Group (CSPG) has decided to name their CSPG Doctoral Award in her honour. The CSPG, founded in 1978, is a non-partisan, non-profit organization of parliamentary experts, academics and public servants that aims to improve knowledge of parliamentary government through the awarding of scholarships. Until now, the CSPG doctoral fellowship did not bear the name of a distinguished scholar, but all this will change on May 17!

We invite you to seize this opportunity to celebrate and recognize a pioneer in political research and to honour Professor Tremblay's career. Partake on May 17 for this announcement happening at theLibrary of Parliament (125 Sparks Street) from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.!
