Marielle Tounsi


Marielle Tounsi was born and raised in Victoria. She attended Oaklands Elementary where her father was a teacher and spent many of her growing years involved actively in the Oaklands community.

When it came time to find a long-term family home, Marielle re-rooted herself in Oaklands, this time alongside her husband, step-son and two dogs. Together they enjoy hiking, crafting, cycling, camping, music, art, sports and the spectacular West Coast.

Marielle works in B.C. Government Communications and Public Engagement and brings her expertise in public affairs, strategic communications planning, marketing/communications content, executing events, critical thinking and problem solving to the Oakland Community Association board of directors. She serves as board secretary and chair of the communications/community development committee.

Between Oaklands' wealth of community based events, initiatives and programs, local businesses, and flourishing community parks, Marielle is proud to put passion into working on community initiatives and keeping the energy in Oaklands vibrant.
