January Meeting

Our first Toronto Branch meeting of 2015 will take place on Monday 26 January starting at 7:30 pm at the Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Hall, 5110 Yonge Street in Toronto (convenient access from the North York subway station).

Our featured speaker will be Victoria Fenner, a documentary producer and journalist. Victoria will tell us about her Personal Journey through Canada’s Earliest Mental Health Facilities. In the course of her family history research, she discovered to her surprise that her great-great-grandmother had been a patient in three of Canada’s earliest asylums. She is now digging through archives, old newspapers and other documents written in the latter half of the 19th century to flesh out her ancestor’s story and find out more about early mental health care in Ontario.

Also in store – Branch Education Committee Chair Jean McNulty will give us an inside look at the work of her Committee and the educational activities planned for this year, and we’ll close out the meeting with a short presentation by Branch member Donna Di Lello on Writing Your Memoirs: It’s Hard to Do After you are Dead.

We hope you’ll be able to join us! To find out more about the January meeting and what’s in store for future Branch meetings, please visit our Meetings page or browse through our Calendar.
