90th Celebration Luncheon – Revised Plans

It’s with great sadness that the committee planning the 90th anniversary celebrations has made the decision to cancel the May 2nd Luncheon. During the current pandemic we want to put the safety of our sisters first. In lieu of a gathering we are launching a social media campaign to show out sisters celebrating Canada Alpha’s 90th from home. we will be posting further details on this site and on our various social media platforms.

during this time we encourage you to share your Canada Alpha memories and 90th wishes using the hashtags #DDDCA90 & #CanadaAlpha

Every November our sisterhood gathers to celebrate the founding of our fraternity. This year we will be incorporating the celebration of our Circle Degree, Silver and Golden Circle ceremonies into our Founder’s Luncheon at the beginning of November. We will be sharing more details in the months to come.

For those who have purchased tickets for the May Luncheon refunds will be processed in May. If you would prefer to direct your ticket purchase to the Legacy gift please contact our treasurer Liz at emelo@sympatico.ca 

We hope that all of our sisters are keeping well and encourage you to reach out to your sisters in support, and demonstrate steadfast love towards one another.

Brain Storm Play

“A visually arresting and comically haunting look at the ramifications of brain surgery and how one woman finds her way in a reality that is forever different. BRAIN STORM takes you into the operating theatre, to dissect the question; are our brains magic, machines or both?”

Shireen Jeejeebhoy, one of our alumnae, had the amazing opportunity to consult on Writer/Director Taliesin McEnaney’s captivating One-Act play Brain Storm. McEnaney asked Shireen to be both brain injury consultant and dramaturge on the world premiere mounting of her play. The workshop production of Brain Storm won the Toshi Knife Cutting Edge Award at the 2017 Toronto Fringe Festival. Combining dialogue, choreography, and projections, the 2020 mounting immerses the audience into the experience of a young woman whose damaged brain throws her into a new reality.

“Taliesin McEnaney draws on the work of famous Canadian neurosurgeon Dr. Wilder Penfield, the writings of her spiritual medium grandmother, and a brain injury in her own family to craft this unique piece of physical theatre.”

Pay-as-you-can-afford tickets are available on the Brown Paper Tickets site. Attend the play at Dancemakers Studio and enjoy dinner or drinks in one of the many restaurants in the Distillery District before or after.

“How do you make vivid theatre out of brain surgery? Somehow writer/director Taliesin McEnaney achieved that back at its workshop production at the Fringe Festival in 2017 – chosen one of NOW’s best productions and ensembles of the fest.” (Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine, 1 Feb 2020)

Canada Alpha 90th Anniversary Reunion

2020 marks a big year for Tri Delta in Toronto!

The new decade begins with a new slate being presented at the Toronto Alumnae Chapter’s 2020 AGM on February 3. Then in May, Canada Alpha will celebrate 90 years as a chartered chapter – and the first international chapter – of Delta Delta Delta Fraternity.

The history of Canada Alpha actually starts in 1927. That year, a group of U of T women came together to found a local sorority called Kappa Phi Alpha. Just two years later, they applied to be the first Canadian Charter of Delta Delta Delta. That request was granted, and the process of installation began. On May 24, 1930 at the Royal York Hotel, 28 women were initiated into the inaugural class of Canada Alpha.

If you would like to learn more about the collegiate chapter history, Christine Kralik has written a blog post on our website, available here:

https://torontotridelta.ca/2019/01/18/canada-alpha-history/comment-page-1/ –

May 24, 2020 is the 90th anniversary of that initiation ceremony, and we hope that you will join us for one or more of the events celebrating the first Canadian chapter of Delta Delta Delta.

One such celebration is an anniversary luncheon on May 2, 2020 at Joey’s Eaton Centre, from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm. Tickets are $45 and available in the Dues and Donations section of this website. Circle Degree, the Silver and Golden Circle Ceremonies, as well as celebrations of other membership milestones, will be held for those who wish to participate. Please contact Judith McCutcheon at mccutcheonjudith2@gmail.com if you are, or know of a sister, celebrating one of the milestones of membership.

We encourage you to forward this invitation to any sisters at large with whom you would like to share Canada Alpha’s 90th. Space is limited, so early ticket purchase is strongly recommended.
