Massé was born on 22 May 1963 in Windsor, Quebec. She was elected to the National Assembly of Quebec in the 2014 election. She represents the electoral district of Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques as a member of Québec solidaire, and is also the party's treasurer.
Due to her narrow margin of victory over Quebec Liberal Party candidate Anna Klisko, a request for a judicial recount was filed by Klisko. The request was rejected by the presiding judge on 11 April, on the grounds that Klisko did not have sufficient evidence of any irregularities in the election process.
Massé is a noted feminist and social justice activist in and around Montreal. Massé also participated in the attempted break-up of the Israeli and Egyptian blockade of the Gaza Strip on board the Canadian vessel Tahrir. She is an out lesbian.
In 2006, Massé was the first ever candidate of the then newly formed Québec solidaire when she stood in a 10 April 2006 by-election in Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques, receiving 22 per cent of the vote. She was also the party's candidate in the same district in the provincial elections of 2007, 2008 and 2012.
