Emerging Co-operator

Originally from Toronto, Michael Norris quickly became involved in educational politics, being elected president of the Ontario Student Trustees’ Association. After sitting on the Premier’s steering committee for Major Capacity Expansion and the establishment of UOF, Michael completed his studies at the University of British Columbia in International Economics, focusing on sustainable development. He then returned to Toronto to work with Conseil scolaire Viamonde in Labour Relations and Community Development, as well as with l’Université de l’Ontario français as a consultant. His passion for economics and sustainable development is what brought him to the Cooperation Council of Ontario, where he works in the Organizational management division. Outside of work, Michael cycles frequently with Morning Glory and is a member of the Board of Directors of COFRD.
