Azure a bend between two canaries singing Or;
Issuant from a circlet of fleurs-de-lis Argent and trillium flowers proper, a cherub proper holding a cross, each branch terminating in a heart Or;
LE SOURIRE QUE TU ENVOIES REVIENT VERS TOI;
Blue and gold are the favourite colours of Ms. Drouin. The canaries convey two separate meanings, one being her love of singing and the other her joy of living. The two segments of the shield represent the two choirs in which Ms. Drouin sings. The band symbolizes the equilibrium in her life.
The fleurs-de-lis represent Quebec, the former province of residence of Ms. Drouin, while the trillium flowers allude to Ontario and Ottawa where she was born and now lives. The cherub exemplifies her belief in a protective spirit. Both the cherub and cross symbolize the importance of spirituality in the daily life of Ms. Drouin.
This phrase means "The smile you send out returns to you".
