Canadian Senator

Julie Miville-Dechêne was a journalist for over 25 years before becoming Radio-Canada's first female ombudsman

In 2011, Julie Miville-Dechêne was appointed president of the Conseil du statut de la femme by the Quebec government. For five years, she modernised the institution to make it relevant to young women. She also gave it a high profile by speaking out publicly on major issues affecting women, including sexual violence. 

Since her appointment to the Senate in 2018, Julie Miville-Dechêne has introduced two Senate bills: Bill S-211, against forced labour and child labour in supply chains, and Bill S-210, which would make it mandatory to set up age verification mechanisms to protect minors from exposure to online pornography.
