Torontohye: We will continue our mission and remain committed to our community

Over the years, our bilingual publication has done its utmost to promote the community’s initiatives and events, recognize its achievements, and celebrate our uniqueness.

In June, we bid farewell to our founding editor-in-chief, Karin Saghdejian Deragopian. For the past 17 years, Karin’s steadfast dedication to her community and its members was reflected on the pages of our publication. Thanks to her passion and commitment, the paper has become so beloved by so many. During her tenure, Torontohye grew, prospered, and became a staple within the community.

Until recently, Torontohye published its monthly print edition without fail. Unfortunately, lockdowns and restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic forced the temporary suspension of our print issue. This hurdle, however, did not stop Torontohye’s team of dedicated staff and volunteers from continuing its operations online.

Today, we are happy to announce that our print edition will be available again to you, our dedicated readers, in a new and engaging format in the coming weeks. Along with the redesigned print edition, we will also launch a brand-new website to better represent our community and ensure an easier-to-navigate, more user-friendly experience for our readers.

All we ask from you is that you hang tight for the many changes and surprises on the horizon. 

We, Toronto-Armenians, have common interests, concerns, and passion for our community. At Torontohye, we believe that a vibrant, unique community like Toronto requires good communication so that we can collectively engage with those interests, address those concerns, and celebrate that passion.

You may have noticed that, over the past few months, our content has put renewed emphasis on our community—its members, organizations, churches, schools, institutions, and businesses—and has been completely original. We will continue our mission and remain committed to the Armenian community of Toronto by offering a voice to its members, promoting its initiatives and events, recognizing its achievements, and presenting this special community to a broader audience.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all, once again, for putting your trust in our publication and for supporting us along the way. None of this would be possible without you.

Torontohye has been and continues to be for everyone who is passionate about this community. It is for all Toronto Armenians, regardless of politics, religious affiliation, age, upbringing, or any other qualifier.

We have full hope that today, as in the past, you will stand by and support our work.
