Christian Bode
Vice-president, Société d'histoire de Toronto

Born in 1952 in Belgium, Christian Bode grew up in Montreal and moved to Toronto in 1983.

He was a reporter with Radio-Canada in Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary before joining the Ontario Public Service in 1990.

For the last six years, Christian Bode has been a member and is currently the vice-president of La Société d’histoire de Toronto, a French-speaking historical association whose mandate is to develop interest in Toronto’s French history, tell Toronto’s history in French and help in the preservation of historical sites.

In June 2011, the Société d’histoire de Toronto, in collaboration with the City of Toronto, the Toronto Region Conservation Authority and First Nations, launched the Historical Park and Le Sentier partagé/Shared Path along the Humber River.

The site, a project of La Société d’histoire de Toronto, is a celebration of the location where Canada and Toronto’s three founding people, First Nations (Hurons-Wendats, Mississauga and Senecas) French explorers and British settlers met, traded and developed what is today a vibrant city.
