Canadian Medical Association

Winnipeg; University of Manitoba, 1984; family medicine. Died April 1, 2022, aged 63. Survived by her partner Pascal and her siblings. “Nichole’s medical career spanned some 35 years. It included volunteering in Jamaica, Burundi, Chad and Haiti, working in northern Quebec and Kenora, Ont., and back in Winnipeg at Ongomiizwin Health (formerly Northern Medical Unit, Health Sciences Centre), and finally at the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba. Nichole’s passions were to serve the poor and to teach and strive for social justice, and she made them the focus of her career. She was a very giving person — she cared for the people she met, and she cared for the environment. She also deeply cared for the people served by the Main Street Project, which she supported by volunteering with its food bank and serving on its Board of Directors until her diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in 2019.”
