Economy + Jobs

True Blue 2019 Start-Up Expo (Nick Iwanyshyn)

The University of Toronto is an engine of our local, provincial and national economies. The University effectively leverages public, private, and institutional financial resources to further world-class research and talent development to help all facets of the economy grow and adapt to global forces.

U of T's over 525,000 alumni in Canada deliver exceptional health care, drive the country’s competitiveness in science, technology and computing, and enrich our lives through the arts.

The University offers the country’s most generous and comprehensive access guarantee: The University of Toronto has pledged that no academically qualified student will be turned away due to family finances.

Our graduates are highly sought after by employers: the University ranks first in Canada for graduate employability and 13th in the world.

Our economic impact is felt across the GTA. The University of Toronto Mississauga partners with the City of Mississauga and local business in a range of sectors including life sciences, ICT and advanced manufacturing. At the St. George campus, the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence is a global magnet for tech and AI companies. At the University of Toronto Scarborough, faculty and students work and study in partnership with community organizations, enriching undergraduate education.
