Nancy Houle is a founding partner at Davidson Houle Allen LLP. She has practiced exclusively in the area of condominium and joint-property ownership law since being called to the Bar in 2002.  Her practice includes general corporate advice to condominium corporations, financing and secured transactions, building deficiency litigation, and proceedings involving disputes between condominium corporations and residents.

Nancy has published articles in CondoContact, Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (ACMO), CondoBusiness Magazine as well as other online publications. She is also a frequent guest lecturer at Canadian Condominium Institute (CCI) Seminars, including the Annual Directors Course and joint ACMO/CCI Conferences, both provincially and nationally. Nancy has also been a guest on various local, and nationally syndicated, radio and television shows including Ottawa Morning on CBC Radio and CBC Television.

Nancy has also participated extensively in the process for revision of the Condominium Act, 1998, through her role as President of CCI Eastern Ontario, former co-chair of the Constitution Committee for CCI National, and on the legislative review committee for ACMO/CCI.  She has also been invited by the Ontario Ministry to participate in discussions on the proposed revisions and regulations before and after public release and consultation.  The participate will also continue as the current CCI-National Chair of Government Relations.

Nancy enjoys connecting with people, and finding ways to make a genuine difference to the lives of individuals, groups, and communities. One of her key strengths is being able to run smooth and effective meetings, leading the way to a practical resolution. Part of this is due to her sense of humour and ability to lighten the mood, even when a tough message needs to be delivered.

Growing up in a military family, Nancy spent her formative years living overseas, and now loves travelling to different parts of the world. Her labour of love is her home near the Gatineau Hills. Consequently, Nancy and her family spend as much time as possible enjoying the country and the outdoors: skiing in winter, and swimming in the summer – or following her son around the golf course.
