Nathalie Dion

Studio Director, Partner, Architect OAQ, FRAIC

A graduate of the École nationale supérieure d’architecture de Paris-Belleville and the Université de Montréal, Nathalie Dion has over thirty years of experience as an architect. President of the Ordre des architectes du Québec from 2013 to 2019, she joined Provencher_Roy in 2017 and became a partner in 2021.

A dedicated advocate, she is focused on the democratization and promotion of architecture as a profession and a citizen’s concern. Nathalie Dion was a member of the board of Architectes de l’Urgence (2011 to 2013) and the Ordre des architectes du Québec (2006 to 2019), as well as the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB) which she chaired in 2020-2022. After leading the public debate associated with the development of a national architecture policy, she was awarded the title of Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada in 2018. Her inclusive leadership style will have contributed significantly to the launch, in 2019, of Québec’s first Strategy for Architecture supported by the Québec Ministry of Culture and Communications.

The breadth and depth of her experience are testaments to her versatility. As a project manager, Nathalie has been leading large-scale projects since 2017, such as the rehabilitation and redevelopment of the Terrasses de la Chaudière; the real estate analysis for a unified campus of the Université du Québec en Outaouais; and the redevelopment of the Ottawa Station. In addition to her management duties, she is responsible for developing and maintaining professional relations with certain First Nations communities, with whom she works in the context of project development.
