Anne-Marie Parent graduated from the Université de Montreal with a B.A. in 1968 and a B.L.A. degree in 1972. She became a member of AAPQ and CSLA in 1975 and served on the AAPQ Board from 1978-81. Here she structured the steadily growing association and currently serves as a member of its Legal-Ethics Committee.
Anne-Marie has worked as a landscape architect and town planner for the City of Montreal, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, as well as for a multidisciplinary firm involved in the planning of the Mirabel Airport before co-founding, 25 years ago, Parent Latreille and Associates (PLA) Consultants, a senior consulting firm involved in environment and land-use planning. As a well-known professor at the Université de Montréal for 20 years, Anne-Marie has lectured on urban design, and sustainable planning and development.
Ms. Parent is also a Councillor for the City of Montreal. First elected in 1989, she has always had a strong interest in the environmental and planning aspects of municipal issues. She now chairs a municipal committee preparing an eco-territory management plan and is also a member of Council's standing committee on Transportation, Environment and Sustainable Development, studying traffic improvement measures and preparing a protection plan for Montreal island's remaining natural environment.
Anne-Marie heads the National InfraGuide's Environmental Protocols Committee, a team of experts examining environmental conditions and opportunities with respect to municipal infrastructure. For her exemplary, continuous contributions to our profession over three decades, Ms. Parent is most deserving for recognition and election to CSLA Fellowship.
