Margot has also served as an Adjunct Professor in governance and ethics for the University of Alberta, was a co-instructor for the Faculty of Law at the University of British Columbia, a Senior Vice-President at one of Canada’s leading telecommunications companies and practiced law with one of Canada’s oldest and most prestigious law firms.
