Ève Bélisle (born September 14, 1979) is a Canadian curler and amateur ornithologist from Montreal. She is employed at the Center for Research in Computational Thermochemistry at École Polytechnique.

Career[edit]

Bélisle is relatively new to the national curling scene in Canada. In 2005 she was one of the very few women to ever skip a team to the Canadian Mixed Curling Championship. Her Quebec team finished the round-robin with a 4-7 record.

The following year, Bélisle won her provincial championships giving her the right to represent Team Quebec at the 2006 Scott Tournament of Hearts. At the Hearts, Bélisle finished the round-robin with a 7-4 record putting her in the tie-breaker against Newfoundland and Labrador's Heather Strong. Quebec won the tie-breaker, but lost the 3-4 game against the defending champion Jennifer Jones.

At the 2007 Canadian Mixed Curling Championship (played in November, 2006), Bélisle became only the second woman to skip a team to the final (Shannon Kleibrink was the first). She lost to New Brunswick in the final, skipped by Terry Odishaw.

Bélisle won her second provincial title in 2010, and proceeded to finish with a 5-6 record at the 2010 Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

In 2013, Bélisle won the mixed double event with teammate Steve Johns at the New Zealand Winter Games, representing Australia.

Personal life[edit]

In Spring of 2008, she noticed and spread the news of a Peregrine Falcon pair's presence at the Pavillon Roger-Gaudry of the University, eventually leading to the installation of a nest box.[1]
