Janouk Charbonneau joined the Fasken team in May 2019 after completing his third year of law school at the Université du Québec à Montréal.  He decided to enter law school while continuing to play professional soccer.

In terms of community involvement, Janouk was a member of the UQAM legal clinic and, as a member of the Clinique Juripop, he helped a group of secondary students prepare for a trial court simulation. He was also involved with the business law committee and mentored first-year law students.

While evolving within a professional soccer organization for over five years in Montreal, Janouk managed to balance his sports career with his studies and received several awards for being a student-athlete. He currently plays on the university soccer team and sits on the UQAM Sports Teams Board of Directors.

He also serves on the board of directors of a community organization that helps youth with learning disabilities.
