Vicky Boldo was born in British Columbia and raised on Vancouver Island. She is a transracial adoptee from the ’60’s Scoop Era. Although she was placed for adoption at birth, she is a strong ally to the survivors of this time. 

Vicky is of Cree/Coast Salish/Métis heritage. Vicky is a registered energy medicine practitioner (ANQ) and has a certificate in journalism for Concordia. As a research coordinate she is passionate about effecting change in policy, education and attitudes in social work, health care and education for First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

Vicky is on the board of the Native Women’s Shelter on Montreal, of the Montreal’s First Peoples Justice Centre, and of the Indigenous Survivors of Child Welfare Network, and she participates in the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) Aboriginal Advisory Committee. Vicky is the Elder at Concordia Aboriginal Student Resource Centre. Until 2016, Vicky worked in women’s reproductive medicine with McGill University Health Centers. Vicky has presented her personal healing in conferences and regularly guest lectures at schools, universities and colleges as well as to child and family services and public and private sector organizations.

She is the mother of 4 and grandmother of 4. The healing journey that Vicky has been on for over 25 years has brought her to a place of strength and compassion. Her joy in living is matched by her desire to give back to the community.
