Elected official

Josué Corvil

City Councillor

Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension

Saint-Michel borough



514 872-0096
[email protected]

A Saint-Michel resident, Josué Corvil has always been significantly involved in his community, long before he was elected by the citizens of the Saint-Michel district. As a librarian and literature enthusiast, his commitment has been demonstrated on many occasions, notably by the reading workshops he has led for young people for the past ten years. This elected official also holds numerous university degrees, including a master’s degree in library and information science from Université de Montréal. 

In addition to being a member of the Commission sur le développement social et la diversité montréalaise, Josué received the award for supporting the cause of devalued children from FOVA (La Fondation Voix Angélique) in 2016, one of the many community organizations he has been involved with over the years. 

Entering politics was a natural decision for Josué. Curious and committed, he wanted to get more involved in his community and make a real difference in the daily life of Saint-Michel. He says he is proud of the resilience, the mobilization and the voice of the citizens of this district. As an elected official, he wants to continue to reach out to citizens, listen to them and, essentially, make them happy.

“Our bosses,” says Josué, “are all Montrealers. We must be accountable to them and serve them with the utmost rigour, listening and caring.”
