Philippe has joined Paquette & Associates, Lawyers as a law student for the 2023 Fall Term. Born in North Bay and raised in Dryden, Ontario, Philippe has been a resident of Northern Ontario his whole life. He moved to Thunder Bay in 2016 to join the Thunderwolves at Lakehead University, where he completed an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Political Science/Pre-Law with Dean's List Distinction. Following his time at Lakehead, Philippe chose to stay close to home, attending the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law to earn his Juris Doctor degree.
Philippe has experienced northern issues first-hand, working jobs in agriculture and food security, construction, and interacting with First Nations communities through the funeral business. By working with Rachael and Paquette & Associates, Lawyers, Philippe seeks to further his knowledge so that he can one day be part of solving these issues alongside the legal community in Northern Ontario.
In his free time, Philippe likes to spend time outdoors, where he goes hunting, fishing, golfing, and walks with his dog, Goose. Philippe enjoys spending time with close family and friends when he is not outdoors.
Philippe looks forward to learning and working alongside his fellow Northern Ontarians this coming fall… and beyond!
