University information


Ryerson is Canada’s leader in innovative, career-focused education and a university clearly on the move. It is a distinctly urban university with a mission to serve societal need, and a long-standing commitment to engaging its community.

Guided by a bold new Academic Plan, an ambitious research agenda, and a recently-completed Master Plan to revitalize the campus and surrounding neighbourhood, Ryerson is now the most applied-to university in Ontario relative to available spaces, and its reputation with business and community leaders continues to rise.

In just a few years since the introduction of its first master's program, Ryerson has grown to host 2,000 graduate students in 34 programs, including nine at the doctoral level. The University now ranks third in Canada - and first in Ontario - in terms of research growth. And Ryerson is reshaping the downtown core of Toronto with two new buildings: a Photography Gallery and Research Centre in the heart of campus, and a Student Learning Centre on the site of the iconic Sam the Record Man property on Yonge Street, in the heart of the city.

Since 1948, Ryerson has built its reputation on the strength of its academic curriculum, and offers close to 100 PhD, master's, and undergraduate programs, with a total enrolment of 25,000 and more than 65,000 registrations annually in The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education.

Conference Dinner venue


The conference dinner was held in the Toula Restaurant on the 38th floor of the Westin Harbour Castle. The restaurant overlooks Lake Ontario and has great views of the Toronto skyline.

 

General information


Toronto is home to the CN Tower, once the tallest tower in the world, the world’s longest street (Yonge Street) and has more people living in it than all four of Canada’s Atlantic provinces combined. More than 100 languages and dialects are spoken by the one of the most diverse populations in the world, with nearly all the major culture groups represented in the populace.

Toronto has been lived in for around 11,000 years – since just after the last ice age. In 1793 the first backwoods village was founded and the rest, as they say, is history. You can explore that history through 10 museums in the city and through the City of Toronto website.
