Hilary is Cayuga, Wolf Clan from Six Nations. She is happily married to Scott Visheau and is a proud mother of 3 boys aged 5, 8 and 14. Hilary focuses her time and life around her family. Everything she does, she does with them in mind. This is why helping the Six Nations Community prosper economically is so important to her and why she volunteered to sit on the Advisory Committee. Hilary wants her sons to take pride in their community and, with any luck, be able to find valuable employment opportunities close to home and close to their mom.
Hilary has an undergraduate degree in Sociology from McMaster University and a Law degree from the University of British Columbia where she focused her studies on Aboriginal law and criminal law. Upon graduation, Hilary clerked at the Federal Court of Appeal under Justice Karen Sharlow. After completing her articling and being called to the Bar, Hilary was employed in private practice in the areas of criminal and family law. In 2004, she left the practice and began working for the Department of Justice where she continues to practice Real Estate and Commercial Law.
