She began to appear in films in the mid-1970s, her first significant role being the ex-wife of the philandering husband played by Rémy Girard in The Decline of the American Empire (Le Déclin de l'empire américain), for which she received a Genie Award nomination. She appeared in The Red Violin, and reprised her character from Le Déclin in Les Invasions barbares. She has also appeared in 'Scanners II: The New Order, French Immersion, Ciao Bella, and Night Song.
