Brittney Bertrand

Brittney Bertrand is a dedicated volunteer and role model for her community. She is currently taking an Aboriginal Stream Program through Douglas College's Child and Youth Care Program. Her goal is to become an Aboriginal Youth Worker and an Advocate for Children and Youth in Care.

Brittney has faced many barriers in her young life. She did not have the family support to help her achieve the goals she longed for. Brittney was determined to break the generational cycle of poverty and addiction in her family. Not only has Brittney broken the cycle for her and her children, she is an inspiration to many other young mothers in similar situations.

Brittney has been a volunteer for a Youth Unlimited program called Young Families for about 3 years. Brittney is a dedicated mom with 2 children and hopes to one day share more of her Métis Culture with her kids as well as the children and youth she works with. If anyone is deserving of this recognition it is definitely this girl. She is always on the go, trying to bring a positive light to her culture and she is so proud to be Métis. Brittney has been in the media over the past 5 years advocating for the youth she works with as well as sharing the ways she is making her community green by recycling old computer equipment through the Computers for Schools program.

Brittney is a person full of integrity. She is compassionate, hardworking and a great communicator. She has always had the ability to rise above her circumstances and walk through with strength of spirit and honesty. I know Brittney will continue to make her mark in the community and have a huge impact on those she works with!
