Growing up in Wawa Ontario, Francis Lapointe's passion for utilitarian and green building design was shaped by Northern Ontario's spectacular wilderness, challenged by the forestry and mining industries. This life-long affinity for sustainable design, combined with 20 years of practical experience has led to a broad range of building projects that demonstrate thoughtful transformation of space while being responsive to the environment and providing enduring value.
Francis Lapointe has a diploma in architectural technology from Centennial College, a bachelor of architecture degree from Laval University and a post-professional masters of architecture degree from the TUNS, (now Dalhousie University). Francis is a recipient of the Ontario Premier's Award and is a member of the Program Advisory Committee for Centennial College's Sustainable Architecture Program.

Since 2007, Francis has been teaching in the Sustainable Architecture Program at Centennial College.
