CIMA Welcomes Elise Roiron to the Team as the New Policy Analyst.
As a former political staffer, Elise joins CIMA with a strong background in policy development, communications, and great insight into government relations. After 5 years in the political world, she decided to take the dive into an industry that has always be close to her heart: the Canadian independent music industry. As a Policy Analyst, Elise is looking forward to studying the ins-and-outs of policies that are important to CIMA’s members, advocating on their behalf with key policy makers while keeping them informed every step of the way.
“Music has played a huge role throughout my life, and that’s especially true of Canadian independent music. I have always wanted to be able to show my appreciation for it by giving back to the artists and the businesses that support them- I hope that my work with CIMA will do just that.” says Elise.
Born and raised in Ottawa, Elise graduated from the University of Ottawa with a B.A. in Social Sciences. She began her career in politics working for the then Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) for Ottawa South and Premier, Dalton McGuinty. Her career eventually took her to Queen’s Park where she worked for MPP John Fraser, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care.
In her spare time, you can find Elise wandering the streets of Toronto in search of the best cup of coffee, petting other people's dogs, and listening to a new album that she is convinced everyone would love.
She looks forward to hearing about your experiences and how she can help. Feel free to give her a call at 416-485-3152 extension 223 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
