Chanin Lee
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
– Maya Angelou

Chanin Lee, originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, is a young Indigenous actress based in Toronto. She realized her passion for acting during high school and has been devoted since. She studied at Seneca College’s Acting for Camera and Voice program, where she learned to hone her talents. Since graduation, Chanin has worked closely with director Jonathan Elliott in the short films Her Water Drum (2018), which was nominated for Best Short Narrative at the LA Skins Fest, and Where the Oak Splits (2019), which was made for Art With Impact’s OLIVE Collection.

It is important to her to remain close to her culture and to bring Indigenous voices to the mainstream as a storyteller. She also is an adventurer and her curiosity knows no bounds.
