Candidate: Fodé Kerfalla Yansané

When Fodé Kerfalla Yansané arrived in Canada in 1995, penniless, he faced the harsh realities of immigration. Determined to complete advanced studies, he worked nights to finance his education.

After he graduated, he worked for the Quebec Ministry of Municipal Affairs, at the “Sous-ministériat aux politiques et à la concertation métropolitaine”, where he was responsible for file analysis on land-use planning of the Regional County Municipalities (MRC). As a volunteer, he served on the Planning Advisory Committee for the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough in Montreal.

In November 2013, he participated as an independent candidate in the municipal election in Chambly, with the particular objective to find the most respectful and sustainable behaviors for urban management and, in general, for the environment.

Fodé is very proud to be part of the Green Party of Canada team in 2015, and looks forward to working with constituents to build a more equal, sustainable and innovative economy and society.

The Green Party of Canada is excited to have Fodé Kerfalla Yansané as our candidate in the riding of Beloeil-Chambly.
