A first-generation Canadian born to Bajan and Trinidadian parents, Candace was born in Toronto and raised in Scarborough and Pickering, Ont.
Candace was inspired to pursue a second career as a journalist while working as a clerk in the CAO’s office at the City of Pickering. That was when her mother received a serious cancer diagnosis and she realized how precarious life can be, which propelled her to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a “reporter for the news.”
Candace interned in 2012 for Global News Toronto while completing the Journalism, Broadcast & Film Programs at Centennial College’s East York Campus, where she also served as campus Vice President. She was hired later that year as an Associate Producer for Global National.
During her time as a producer, she covered major news stories such as the Rob Ford scandal, the 2015 federal election, and the Jian Ghomeshi trial to name a few, while filling in as a reporter for Global News Toronto on weekends.
In pursuit of a full-time reporting career, Candace moved to Regina in 2016 where she joined the Morning News team for a little more than two and a half years as the weather anchor.
