NANCY CRAWFORD – Ward 12 Toronto Catholic District School Board candidate for Trustee

I am seeking re-election to serve the students and parents and Catholic residents in Ward 12.

I will work to strengthen good learning environments for our students, where students are nurtured and encouraged in mind, body, heart and soul, where student wellbeing comes first and students experience a loving caring community modelled after the teachings of Jesus Christ. I will also advocate for good physical learning environments, that the School Board improve air circulation and purification systems and repair or replace school buildings when needed.

I was first elected in 2010 as Catholic School Trustee at the TCDSB. I have served on numerous Board committees and chaired several. I have been Vice Chair of the Board at two different times. People describe me as calm, balanced and a good meeting chair.

My professional experience includes over 30 years experience in Human Resources involving career management and employee learning. I hold a Masters degree in Education from OISE and am half way through a Masters in Religious Education at St Michael’s College, Faculty of Theology, University of Toronto.

I am an active member of my Catholic Parish of St Brigid’s and contribute as a Lector and Eucharistic minister and a Catechist in the Baptism preparation program.

My husband Paul and I are blessed to have five children all of whom graduated from Catholic schools, nine grandchildren and one great grandchild, many currently attending Catholic schools.

I can be reached at or 416-425-8025. Further information at
