PhilosophyIn a word: Discerning

Tanille approaches her role as a lawyer and investigator with a strong commitment to equity and procedural fairness. Tanille has a deep sense of compassion for all parties to a situation and has earned a reputation for making a positive impact on her community, her profession, and society as a whole.

Before joining Bernardi Tanille was an investigator with the Ontario College of Nurses and, more recently, an adjudicator with the Social Security Tribunal of Canada.

Masters in Public Administration: Queens University (2022), Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology (2008, with Hons); J.D.: Bond University in Queensland, Australia, practicing law in Ontario since 2016.


Tanille has always taken pride in giving back to the community. Her volunteering experience includes working with the Group Recreation and Cultural Mentorship programs with Big Brothers Big Sisters. 

She is also active with her law school alma mater, Bond University. She is a founding Executive Member of her local Alumni Committee chapter and has served on both Bond’s Alumni Advisory Board and as a Member of Bond University Limited.


From a young age Tanille has focused on integrity and following the rules.

When Tanille was four years old she was in the car with her mother who was pulled over by the police after rolling through a stop sign. Trying her best to avoid a ticket, her mother claimed not to have rolled through but Tanille piped up from her car seat and said, “Yes you did!” It has since been a family joke that Tanille would send even her mother to jail.

An interesting tidbit

In 2023 Tanille competed in her first Tough Mudder competition braving winding, single-track, shoe-sucking mud and other obstacles. 

She’s pretty sure she’ll never do that again.
