About Nicole Laframboise

As a commercial property developer, Nicole Laframboise is used to working with bricks and mortar.  Yet her latest venture — Elements Luxury Tented Camp and Nature Spa — has less to do with constructing buildings and more to do with building tents.

A trip to the Glamping Show in Stoneleigh Park last fall helped her to partner with local suppliers, create custom essential oil blends and offer art classes, mountain bike trails, a business centre and yoga studio on an 89-acre private estate near Ottawa, Canada.

Nicole resides onsite with her two children, Thomas and Dana.  She is currently researching alternative, holistic spa therapies from Europe to be incorporated into the project.

    Drawing from first-hand experience from offering Glamping services on an 89-acre private estate in Canada, Nicole will share some of the problems that she has faced with planning, paperwork and safety concerns.
