Laine lives in College Ward with her husband and two children. As a long-term resident of Ottawa, her community involvement and career have focused on helping people create the communities and the city they want.
She has held leadership roles with Centretown Citizens Ottawa Corporation (CCOC), which works to create, maintain and promote housing for people with low and moderate incomes, and Synapcity, a non-profit dedicated to creating an inclusive culture of participation for the city of Ottawa.
Her primary focus has been to identify and dismantle barriers that prevent community participation in decision-making. She believe that communities deserve a say in how they evolve and grow over time.
She wants to use my leadership skills and experience building communities to represent College Ward on City Council.
