Senator Bernadette Clement
Senator Bernadette Clement represents Ontario in the Upper Chamber following a distinguished, three-decade legal career in the province’s non-profit sector. She began her legal career with the non-profit corporation Roy McMurtry Legal Clinic, where she represented injured workers. Senator Clement is a tireless advocate for the most vulnerable members of our society. Before being appointed, she had been serving as the Mayor of Cornwall since 2018, the first woman to do so. She was also the first Black woman to hold that position. Senator Clement is a proud Franco-Ontarian.
