Councillor Natalie Joly

Natalie Joly was raised in St. Albert, then lived in both Edmonton and New Zealand before returning home to St. Albert. 

During her first term on Council, Natalie completed her Master of Business Administration through Athabasca University. She is continuing her commitment to professional development, primarily through opportunities focused on environmental sustainability and equity, diversity, and inclusion.  

Natalie's actions on Council have included strengthening supports for vulnerable persons and supporting sustainable development. She was also elected Chair of Homeland Housing, St. Albert's seniors & affordable housing body, where her previous experience serving seniors informs her service. She also holds the unique honour of championing the first motion within an Alberta municipality to ban the practice of "conversion therapy".

Since 2016, Natalie has also served local families as a volunteer Affiliate Photographer with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, an organization that provides bereavement portraiture to families experiencing the loss of an infant. 
With over 20 years of involvement with the local whitewater kayaking community, she is also an avid kayaker and outdoor enthusiast. More recently, she has become a member of the Alberta Mycological Association, where she is learning the joys of mushroom identification and foraging. 

Natalie's passion for service to others, drive to learn, and commitment to sustainability are her motivators as she serves as a St. Albert Councillor.
