The 2022 Juno Awards are fast approaching, and while I don’t know much about the nominees, I do know one thing: this year, North Toronto C.I. has a personal connection.
Emily D’Angelo, NT alum of 2012, is nominated for the 2022 Juno Awards in the Best Classical Album Award (Solo) category for her album enargeia, featuring newly-interpreted works from the 12th and 21st centuries.
This past February, NT student groups had the opportunity to request funds from the NT Foundation in the bi-annual Dragon’s Den. As part of our mandate, the NT foundation welcomes financial requests from student-led groups to help support the arts, athletics, and student well-being. Over the years, the Foundation has helped send students on outreach trips, supported in-school workshops and helped fund the annual Remembrance Day assembly.
Emily D’Angelo (‘12), has been nominated for a Juno Award in the Best Classical Album Award (Solo) category for her album “enargeia.” Although Emily played cello at NT, she pursued vocal music at university (also applying for the life sciences programs). Emily was featured in our 2016 Maytime Melodies concert as one of the soloists in Mozart’s Requiem.
There are a number of people who graced the halls of North Toronto, but never graduated from them. Farley Mowat and Keanu Reeves come to mind. And now, Michael Hoecht, who attended NT in the 2013-14 academic year.
What will be the lasting impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our collective mental health and social wellbeing — particularly that of our youth?
Join us for the NTCI Alumni Foundation’s Speaker Series event, “Mental Health and Wellness: Improving Outcomes”, featuring notable NTCI alumni making a difference in mental health, wellness, and social connectedness.
Thanks to the generosity of donors, the NT Foundation’s inaugural Speaker Series event in September raised $2,840 for the new Wellness Fund, which will help fund mental health resources for students to bolster the already fantastic support from the school’s dedicated guidance department.
We pause on November 11th each year to remember. To mark the end of the First World War in 1918, and to honour the people who have served and continue to serve Canada in times of war, conflict, and peace.
The North Toronto Collegiate Institute Foundation has been operating in one form or another since 1972.
It started as a Project Fund and was revised in 1987 to become the NTCI Foundation following the seventy-fifth anniversary celebrations for the school.
The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Advisory Board made up of alumni, the school’s Principal, and two student representatives in their graduating year. The student reps are appointed by the Principal and provide valuable input on what is going on in the school and what matters to students. Three former student reps have been elected as full directors following their graduation. Two of those grads were key promoters of the first, successful Speakers Series event that was held in September.
Vassy Kapelos (’00) has loved politics for as long as she can remember.
As a child, she would spend her evenings debating policy and current events over dinner with her family. After graduating from NT, Kapelos studied political science at Western University, before receiving a masters degree from Dalhousie University. Now, she’s one of Canada’s top political journalists and the host of CBC’s marquee political program Power & Politics.
The Covid-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of journalism. Over the past 18 months, we have turned to journalists for timely, accurate, and relevant information.
Join us for an evening of invigorating discussion on the role of journalism during times of crisis, news in a post-truth era, the ever-changing media landscape, and much more. Featuring a group of Canada’s top journalists and broadcasters who also happen to be NTCI alumni, the event will kick-off with a keynote speech by CBC senior correspondent Saša Petricic (’82). This will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by award-winning producer David Brady (’87). Panelists include CP24 anchor Jee-Yun Lee (’91), Global News senior network correspondent Allison Vuchnich (’89), former Globe and Mail dance critic and investigative reporter Deirdre Kelly (’79), and CBC Edmonton reporter Madeleine Cummings (’09). The evening will conclude with a Q+A session with our panelists.
