Natalie Domey is a public servant employed with Statistics Canada. A graduate of Queen’s University’s Department of Political Studies, Natalie currently works as a public servant within the economics and social sciences field. Having worked within the portfolios of Employment and Social Development Canada, the Privy Council Office, the Social Security Tribunal, and the Public Prosecution Service of Canada, she is very adept with regards to governance, and the Canadian social programs– particularly access to information and privacy legislation.

A frequent volunteer within the Ottawa community, Natalie has given her time to various municipal campaigns, the Government of Canada United Way partnerships, and is an active member of Black History Ottawa. A believer in due diligence and process, some of Natalie’s early experience came from organizing the Black History Month Show and the United Cultures Club Gala at her high school, Colonel By Secondary School. It is no wonder that she is now the Director of Planning and Events for YLAC.

A descendant of Black Loyalists, Natalie has committed over a decade of her life to African Nova Scotian genealogical research. As a co-founder and the Director of Planning and Events for the Young Leaders Advisory Council (YLAC), Natalie works to create an environment premised upon diversity and inclusion, and is passionate about uncovering the Black diaspora within the Canadian narrative.

Natalie loves to sing and play classical piano. When she is not occupied with YLAC, Natalie can usually be found doing genealogical research.

What is her favourite YLAC memory to date? Natalie’s favourite YLAC memory is the YLAC Holiday Appreciation Party. Enjoying good food, playing fun games, and socializing with great company – though loud company – really solidified our organization’s sense of community.
