Councillor Fleury grew up in Ottawa and lived in Sandy Hill and Lowertown neighbourhoods for the majority of his life.

Since coming to City Hall, Mathieu has worked for the betterment and beautification of the National Capital and the Rideau Vanier Ward, which is home to Lowertown, Sandy Hill and Vanier. 

In addition to his work at City Council, Mathieu is an active member of a number of committees: he is the chair the Ottawa Community Housing Board, member of the Transportation Committee and Community and Protective Services Committee, board member of Ottawa Public Health and Ottawa Sports Council, and co-chair of the City’s Task Force on Canada’s 150th Anniversary in 2017.
