Tomasia DaSilva is proud to report, produce and host Calgary’s only “local” television business segment “Minding Your Business” on the Global News Hour at 6. Every weekday she searches extensively for the most relevant business news of interest to Calgarians. She is also a full-time news producer and has been with Global Calgary since January 2007.
Tomasia was born in Portugal, and was raised in Calgary.
She has worked in Alberta, BC and Saskatchewan since graduating from SAIT in the early ‘90’s, but is proud to return to the city she loves.
Some of the highlights of her career include a National RTNDA Award for “A Life Worth Living” – the story of a family battling their daughter’s terminal illness.
She was also honoured with Best News Reporting for “Mudslide” – a series of investigative reports about a deadly mudslide in Vancouver.
And Tomasia will never forget covering the devastating Pine Lake Tornado for both Canadian and US networks.
This very busy mom loves spending time with her partner Keith, their daughter Trinity, and their 2 cats. She is also a very proud member of the Portuguese community in Calgary.
Tomasia also loves shopping, but only if she finds a great deal, because it’s all about saving money!
WATCH: Tomasia answers a few questions for Global Calgary viewers, including: what’s the best part of your job, what inspires you and what’s something we don’t know about you?
