At the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, Camille Bérubé finished ninth in the 100-m breaststroke, missing the final by one spot.

At the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games she won a silver and two bronze medals.

In 2014, Bérubé lowered her Canadian record in the 100-m backstroke in the S8 classification in 2014 for the eighth time in five years. She clocked one minute and 23.73 seconds at the Para Pan Pacific Swimming Championships, the biggest event of the year, held in Pasadena, California. In addition, Bérubé used her backstroke skills to lead-off Canada’s bronze medal performance in the 4X100-m medley relay.

At the 2013 IPC World Championships in Montreal she reached the final in her four events including eighth in the 100-m backstroke, breaking her two-year-old Canadian record.

Bérubé was one of Canada’s busiest swimmers at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, competing in five events. She was 11th in three races.

She started swimming at age eight because she wanted to be involved in a sport.
