She attended Colonel By Secondary School, where she began a lifelong friendship with the novelist, playwright and actor Ann-Marie MacDonald.

She has two children, Nadia (born 1982) and Owen(born 1988), and is married to Tim Fairbairn. Among her seven books, Two Hemispheres (Brick, 2007) was shortlisted for the Pat Lowther and ReLit Awards, and is a book-length poetic exploration of illness and health partially inspired by the first medical photographs of women patients of the Surrey County Lunatic Asylum in 1850. Ten photos are included. McInnis’ work has appeared in a variety of journals, including The Malahat Review, The New Quarterly, Event, and Room of One’s Own. McInnis has published widely in magazines in Canada and is a past winner of a CBC literary award and the Ottawa Book Award. She joined the faculty of Algonquin College in 2006, after working as a policy analyst in the Canadian federal government where she focused on the publishing industries in Canada.
