Mayor and Council Office
A native of Haiti, Lucie Tondreau immigrated to Montreal, Canada with her parents at the age of 7.
In 1981, she settled in New York City, where she became intensely involved with the Haitian community. She felt compelled to keep the community informed through various media outlets.
In 1984, Tondreau relocated to Miami where she became even more committed to assist Haitians immigrants to assimilate in the United States. During that year, she joined the Haitian Refugee Center and the Haitian American Community of Dade (HACAD) as a board member and a social service specialist. In that capacity, she provided counseling and other social services to hundreds of Haitians.
Ms. Tondreau is the mother of three children. She is the CEO of Tondreau & Associates, a public relations firm that she established in 1999. Since being elected Mayor of North Miami in June 2013, she still finds the time to actively serve on a variety of advisory boards that cover a variety of fields from advocating for needs in the Haitian community, to transportation and women’s issues.
Lucie Tondreau has led an active life of civic engagement. She has worked as a social service specialist, counselor, language instructor and a popular radio personality. Following the impact of Hurricane Wilma to South Florida, she organized a group of volunteers to help the less fortunate deal with the aftermath of the storm. Her efforts led to the daily distribution of 500 plates of food serving the elderly, the handicapped, pregnant women and those with health issues.
