Anne Sabourin primarily practices environmental and municipal law.  Anne's work with Donnnelly Law includes matters before the Superior Court, Environmental Review Tribunal, Ontario Municipal Board and Joint Board.

Prior to joining Donnelly Law, Anne articled with the Ministry of the Environment where she gained valuable experience by prosecuting environmental offences and assisting with the first Renewable Energy Approval appeal, Erickson v. Director (Ministry of the Environment).  Anne also previously worked with Lake Ontario Waterkeeper, Ecojustice, the National Network on Environments and Women's Health, and Osgoode Hall's Community Legal Aid and Services Programme.

Before studying law, Anne spent many of her summer working outdoors, as a field research assistant in Bay of Fundy salt marshes; running a science camp in Nemaska, QC; and most memorably, as an Ontario Ranger in northern Ontario.

Anne speaks fluent French and often cycles to work.  In the winter she spends as much time as she can improving her telemark skiing.
