Natalie Joncas-Raymond

North Bay, Ontario - The Conseil scolaire public du Nord-Est de l’Ontario (CSPNE) is pleased to announce the appointment of Natalie Joncas-Raymond as Superintendent of Education.

A dedicated educator who has been involved with the northern Francophone population since 1996, Ms. Joncas-Raymond actively contributes to the northeast educational and community environment. Her responsibilities have grown from teacher to resource teacher to educational consultant and principal of various elementary and secondary schools over the past 18 years. She has always encouraged the development and growth of students and her colleagues.

Over the years, her leadership and her management of various projects have benefited the community through her involvement in numerous committees and boards of directors of the credit union movement, better known as the Caisse Alliance in most recent years.

“Natalie Joncas-Raymond’s candidacy meets the expectations and needs of the CSPNE administrative team. She has demonstrated all the motivation and dynamism that will enable her to contribute to the achievement of the board’s strategic planning goals, by focusing on excellence, as well as a sense of belonging and well-being of students and staff members. Her experience over the past 25 years will be a great asset to the administrative team at CSPNE,” says Associate Director of Education Yves Laliberté.

Denis Labelle, Chair of CSPNE, confirms that this decision is consistent with the trustees’ vision for the future. “We are confident that the arrival of Ms. Joncas-Raymond will support the initiatives and projects that promote the growth of CSPNE while keeping the student at the heart of all its decisions, throughout our territory.”

Natalie Joncas-Raymond will assume her new duties on August 1, 2021. Her arrival is in response to the announcement of the upcoming departure of Ms. Tracy Dottori, Business Superintendent, and the restructuring of the Finance and Human Resource Departments.

In closing, the CSPNE would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Dottori for her commitment and dedication during her tenure with the CSPNE. The school board team wishes every success to Ms. Dottori and Ms. Joncas-Raymond in their new positions.  

In accordance with universal values, the CSPNE covers an area of 46,453 km2 and provides the communities of Timmins, Iroquois Falls, Kapuskasing, Hearst, Temiskaming Shores, Sturgeon Falls, North Bay and Parry Sound with quality French-language education. Close to 2,200 northeastern Ontario students have chosen French-language public schools.
