Nicolas Daoust, is the Québec City Representative for Pit Caribou, a microbrewery in the Gaspé
Peninsula. Originally from Sudbury, Ontario, Nicolas attended a francophone high school in
Eastern Ontario. During high school, he completed an exchange program in Italy and received a
scholarship from French for the Future for his participation in the National Essay Contest.
He began his studies in 2015 at the University of Ottawa in accounting. During his first year that
university, he worked as a Senate Page and the following year as the Deputy-Chief Page of the
Senate Page Program.
Afterward, Nicolas worked as the Parliamentary Assistant to a Member of Parliament. Thinking
that he would always work on Parliament Hill, he found himself working as a real estate agent in
the Ottawa region.
Nicolas, being a proud Franco-Ontarian, never imagined leaving his province, made the
unexpected move to Québec City to jump back into politics as a Senior Field Organiser and
eventually found himself in his current role.
Nicolas has always looked for opportunities to be involved in his community. His commitments
include working on multiple election campaigns at all levels of government and for multiple
organizations such as:
• Kin Canda (Russell chapter)
• Member of the Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee at the Township of Russell
• Toastmasters International
Nicolas always seeks opportunities to learn new things. He particularly enjoys traveling to learn
more about history and languages with his wife, Jade.
