As Canada prepares to celebrate 150th anniversary, CIMA Canada is planning to give GTA’s youth with opportunities to engage in a sport that Canada‘s first Prime Minister declared as the national sport of Canada in 1867..Cricket!
In partnership with Toronto Parks, Forestry & Recreation, CIMA Canada is holding the 5th Annual Mayor’s School Cricket Awards at Metro Hall in Toronto. I am writing to invite you to the event as we celebrate the success of Toronto’s School Cricketers in 2016 and recognize community cricket coaches for their contribution. Scarborough schools such as Jean Vanier and Woburn are among Mayor’s School Cricket Awards recipients and we are interested in arranging a story on InsideToronto. Please see attached invitation for details.
If the popularity of cricket during confederation reflected the British roots of the general populace in Canada at that time, cricket’s new popularity 150 years later comes as a direct result of changing demographics and how it shapes local recreation. About 100 Toronto school cricketers who excelled on and off the field of cricket will be receiving Mayor’s School Cricket Awards and we will be joined by elected representatives and staff from TDSB and TCDSB to announce the 2017 Mayor’s School Cricket Tournament.
Date: April 6, 2017
Time: 10:00 a.m. (Remarks 10:30 a.m.)
Location: Metro Hall (Rotunda), 55 John Street, Toronto
Launched in 2005, the Mayor’s School Program is a partnership project between Toronto, Parks Forestry and Recreation and CIMA Canada to engage youth through the game of cricket. The program has won several international awards from the International Cricket Council (ICC) and since 2008, the Mayor’s Youth Cricket Team has represented Toronto in England, Sri Lanka and Trinidad as youth cricket ambassadors of Toronto.
Thank you and we look forward to see you at the event.

Prior to that he was President of Thornmark Asset Management and President of Clearsight Wealth Management Inc. Burns is co-founder of the True Patriot Love Foundation, which supports Canada’s military, veterans and their families by funding programmes for mental health, physical rehabilitation, career transition and family services.
In June 2016, Canada’s Governor General, on behalf of the Queen, awarded Burns the Meritorious Service Cross for this work with military families. In 2012, he was awarded the Canadian Forces Medallion for Distinguished Service, the military’s highest honour for a civilian. That year, he was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, honouring significant contributions and achievements by Canadians. In 2010, he was named one of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40.

He successfully led the team that the secured the Garrons’ $50 million donation, the largest gift ever made to a Canadian community-teaching hospital, matching the largest gift ever to any hospital in Canada. He is also on the Board of two world-class venues: Roy Thomson Hall and Massey Hall.
Queen Anne Silver
The Queen Anne Silver was originally given to the Mohawks by Queen Anne in 1711 and housed in the Mohawk Chapel at Fort Hunter in modern New York State. The Silver was comprised of eight items of communion plate. The Mohawks were loyal allies of King George III in the American Revolution and, after the revolution, resettled in Ontario at the Bay of Quinte (Tyendinaga) and on the Grand River. The Silver was divided between the two territories with four pieces going to the Grand River and three going to Tyendinaga. One piece had been lost in the move to Canada. The three at Tyendinaga are a chalice, a flagon and a footed paten. A second chalice was given to the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte by Queen Elizabeth II in 1984. They are housed at Her Majesty’s Chapel Royal of the Mohawks (Christ Church). In 2004 the chapel was elevated by the Queen from a royal chapel to the higher status of a chapel royal, of which there are only six.
