Alain Miguelez

Alain Miguelez was born in France of Argentinean parents who emigrated to Canada’s capital in 1970. During his childhood, Alain had the good fortune to travel to Argentina, Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, France, Spain, California, as well as most of Eastern Canada. Inspired by his parent’s urban culture, he developed a passion for cities and history, and has continued travelling and enjoying the world’s beautiful cities as often as possible. Alain studied urban planning at the Université de Montréal and has worked as a planner almost continuously since graduating in 1994. Through a variety of jobs including working as a tour guide on Parliament Hill, at a hardware store, as a festival security guard, at a corner store, driving tour buses, DJ’ing in bars, and writing the occasional op-ed piece for the neighbourhood newspaper, Alain has come to know his city well. He currently works for the City of Ottawa as an urban planner and lives in Sandy Hill.
