James has been involved with Toronto Brigantine since the summer of 2008.

James went on to take a crew position on the Privateer Lynx, before returning to pursue an education at Conestoga college in the Millwright apprenticeship program.  Eventually James found his way back to us as the First Mate on board the STV. Pathfinder for his first co-op term. Before becoming our Captain he previously worked on the Mist of Avalon and for Purvis Marine. 


Tasha Hyndman - Program Coordinator 

Tasha first became involved with Toronto Brigantine in the summer of 2007 when her parents dropped her off for a trainee course on board Playfair. After 3 years in the program, she went on to study Social Work at the University of Windsor and began to pursue a career working with at risk youth populations. Before coming back to TBI as the Program Coordinator, she worked for Elizabeth Fry Toronto as a Co-Facilitator of the Girls Circle Program - an arts-based prevention group for young girls who are at risk for substance use.
