Sarah Doucette is a Canadian politician, who was elected to Toronto City Council in the 2010 city council election, defeating Bill Saundercook in Ward 13, Parkdale–High Park. Doucette was born in Winchester, Hampshire but grew up on the Isle of Wight, in the United Kingdom in the 1960s. Doucette came to Canada in 1980. She and her husband have two children. They have lived in the Swansea neighbourhood of Toronto for fifteen years. Doucette worked at the Swansea Town Hall since 2004 and in 2008, she became executive assistant to the executive director. To run for city council she had to take a leave of absence from her job. The 2010 election race was her first campaign. She was re-elected in 2014.
Doucette comes from a long line of municipal politicians. Both her grandfather and her mother were city councillors and were then elected as mayors: he, in Winchester in 1953, and she in the county of the Isle of Wight, during the 1990s. Doucette supported Peggy Nash in her bid to become leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada.
