Biography
Catherine (Kiki) A. Delaney CM LLD

Kiki Delaney's career in the investment business began over 35 years ago in Winnipeg.

While working as a sales assistant at Merrill Lynch in Winnipeg, Kiki discovered her love of research. She moved to Toronto to join the research department of a small mutual fund company. Shortly afterward, the firm was acquired by Guardian Capital Group. Kiki worked her way from research assistant, to analyst, to portfolio manager, and then to executive vice president at Guardian Investment Counsel. In 1985, Gluskin Sheff & Associates Inc. invited Kiki to join their firm as a partner and executive vice president.

Kiki fulfilled a long-held goal in 1992 when she founded C.A. Delaney Capital Management Ltd., an investment counselling firm. From the outset, her priority has been to establish a cohesive and stimulating environment that is conducive to providing private wealth clients with outstanding returns and attentive service.

Since its inception, Delaney Capital Management has become one of the leading investment counselling firms in Canada and one of the most recognized firms in capital markets in this country. Delaney Capital Management is highly regarded in the field of private client money management. The firm is equally well respected for the calibre of its research and the quality of its people. The company’s investment performance is impressive. Its strong client focus continues to be among the leading factors of the firm's success. Delaney Capital Management has grown and expanded over the years and today employs 18 people and manages over $1.8 billion on behalf of individuals and institutions.

Kiki is a past director of the Toronto Society of Financial Analysts. In addition, she is a past president of The Ticker Club, one of the least known but most prestigious investment organizations in Canada. The Ticker Club’s first meeting was in 1929 and, in 2001 Kiki Delaney was elected its second female president.

Mr. Belcourt has been one of the foremost business leaders and political figures within Canada's Métis community. A well-respected negotiator, Mr. Belcourt has played a key role in establishing a national voice for Canada's Métis and Non-Status Indians. His efforts were an important contributing factor in the Métis being recognized, in the Constitution Act in 1982, as one of the Aboriginal peoples of Canada. He has represented the Métis Nation in high-level talks at the United Nations and the Organization of American States and has made presentations to the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, the World Summit on Information Society, the International Telecommunications Union and the World Conference Against Racism.

Mr. Belcourt was founding President of the Native Council of Canada in 1971 and recently founded and served as President of the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) until early 2008.

Mr. Belcourt is currently President of the Indigenous Commission for Communications Technologies in the Americas. He has been a member of OCAD University's Aboriginal Educational Council since its inception in 2008. In early 2008, Mr. Belcourt was appointed to the post of Métis Nation Ambassador for International Issues by the President of the Métis National Council. In 2006, Mr. Belcourt received a National Aboriginal Achievement Award for public service. Mr. Belcourt received an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree from Lakehead University in 2010.

Dr. John Semple
As chief of surgery at Women's College Hospital, Dr. John Semple has been instrumental in establishing the hospital as home to one of the country's top centres for breast restoration. He put Women's College on the map as a leading centre for breast reconstruction some years ago by developing and pioneering new surgical techniques in breast restoration. Previously, as director of the Advanced Regenerative Tissue Engineering Centre at the University of Toronto and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Dr. Semple led a group of scientists, engineers and surgeons in producing new technologies for soft tissue regeneration and reconstruction following cancer surgery. He is a professor in the department of surgery at the University of Toronto and former president of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons.

In March 2010, Dr. Semple was named chair in surgical breast cancer research by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - Ontario Region. The chair is based at Women's College and was the first endowed chair in the hospital's department of surgery. Dr. Semple's appointment, Women's College's first such appointment in surgical breast cancer research, placed him as a core scientist at Women's College Research Institute (WCRI). He and his team explore improvements in reconstructive surgery techniques including the use of autotransplantation of a patient's own lymph nodes to treat and prevent the formation of lymphedema - a painful side-effect of breast cancer treatment that can cause severe swelling in the arm. Dr. Semple graduated from OCAD University in 1975.
