About Simon Ouellette

Simon Ouellette was born on November 22, 1988, in Grand Falls, New Brunswick. Throughout his career, he has been committed to advocating for the rights and well-being of working people.

Actively engaged in the labour movement for the last decade, Simon has been working as the Communications Representative for the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) in Fredericton, since 2016. In this capacity, he has represented the interests of over 30 thousand unionized members in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. His work has spanned various sectors, including nursing homes, municipalities, healthcare, education, and social services, among others.

One of Simon's proudest achievements has been his role in the 2021 provincial strike aimed at securing improved wages for frontline workers in New Brunswick. 

Beyond his role at CUPE, he is a member of the City of Fredericton's Social Inclusion Committee and has also served on the boards of several community organizations, such as the NB Common Front for Social Justice, the Société de l’Acadie du Nouveau Brunswick, and has served two terms as the Vice-President of the Fédération étudiante du Centre universitaire de Moncton (FÉCUM).

Simon holds a law degree from the Université de Moncton, earned in 2015, in addition to a bachelor’s degree in history. Before his time with CUPE, Simon has worked with the NB Human Rights Commission, the CKUM 93.5 FM radio station and the NB Housing Corporation.

He is a fervent advocate for improved public transit, affordable housing, good urban planning, and improved public services. Simon and his partner, Annick, live on the Hill, in the King's College’s area.
