Celebrate Indigenous Film at imagineNATIVE

The festival devoted to film, video, radio, and new media works by indigenous artists from Canada and beyond marks its 15th anniversary.

Ryerson Reveals Design of New Mixed-Use Building on Church Street

The Church Street Development north of Dundas will feature clinical experience suites, teaching and research space, and residence beds.

Students entering Ryerson’s Faculty of Community Services in 2018 will find themselves studying and learning in a brand-new building. Located on Church, just north of Dundas, the Perkins+Will–designed structure will involve an eight-storey podium with a tower to the north.

The podium will be home to four programs—the School of Nutrition, the School of Occupational and Public Health, the Midwifery Education Program, and the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing—from the Faculty of Community Services. The tower will feature 250 residence beds for Ryerson students.

Weekend Newsstand: October 18, 2014

Use your Saturday to head out and grab some of the last fleeting hours of sun and warmth before the cruel winter sets in, but read some news first: a longtime flag vendor at Yonge-Dundas Square has had his licence revoked, Olivia Chow will release the names of her campaign donors, and both Doug Ford and John Tory promise to fix public housing (without promising any money for the effort).
