Isabelle Roy-Nunn is a fierce defender of the principle that workers’ rights are human rights. Whether it’s helping unions arrive at fair collective agreements or helping employees resolve workplace issues, Isabelle is committed to making people’s working lives better. Her many years of experience in-house at a large national public sector union, leading the negotiations, representation and legal services, gives Isabelle valuable and unique insights into the needs of her clients. She understands what it’s like to be the client and she understands what it’s like to be a union.
Isabelle thrives on thinking outside the box to find innovative solutions with her clients. She approaches issues with strategic vision and broad-scoped perspective, and you can rest assured that her clients will always get advice and representation tailored to their specific needs.
In addition to having significant expertise on internal union governance matters, Isabelle is a persuasive advocate in any setting. She is just as comfortable advocating for clients in more collaborative settings, like informal discussions or more structured mediations, as she is in formal adversarial settings, such as arbitration, human rights tribunals and judicial review or appellate hearings. Isabelle is a member of the firm’s pay equity team and regularly provides training and hands-on advice to union staff and members on developing and maintaining in the Ontario and federal jurisdictions.
A true Acadian New Brunswicker at heart, Isabelle prides herself on providing excellent services in both French and English. Since Ontario has been her home since the mid-90s, Isabelle has also become an active member and supporter of the Franco-Ontarian community.
Isabelle is a member of l’Association des juristes d’expression française and the Canadian Association of Labour Lawyers. She enjoys assisting various community organizations through volunteer boards.
When she’s out of the office, Isabelle is happiest curled up with a good book, whipping up something yummy in the kitchen, traveling with her family or cheering on her daughter’s soccer team
