Vintage Postcard Collection.

I collect old vintage postcards mainly from Northern Ontario many of them over 100 hundred years old or more.

Unlike other hobbies such as stamps, coins and paper money which for the most part are catalogued, postcards often are not and involve  research to discover  who the photographer was and the location of the subject. Postcards were the most common means of communication before World War 1. I have made some interesting discoveries and   have contributed some of my postcards images to others which have been  published in articles and books

Mental Health Awareness

Candice has always had a passion for volunteering and sought out the opportunity to be an Ambassador of Hope due to the impact of mental illness on her family.

Raised in Oshawa, Candice graduated from R.S McLaughlin CVI before attending Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo.

Having grown up with a family member diagnosed with Schizophrenia, Candice remembers the devastation the illness and the stigma surrounding it brought her brother and their parents. She also witnessed his recovery during his time as a patient at Ontario Shores and is buoyed by the mental health movement that is normalizing mental illness.

Candice is a Human Resource professional with Durham Region Police Service who is determined to remove the barriers still facing those living with severe and complex mental illness.
