Our Advocacy

The University of Toronto Government Relations Office advocates for the University with local, provincial and federal governments. We partner with community and industry groups in many areas, from employment and productivity, to urban policy.

The Government Relations Office has submitted, contributed, or convened stakeholders to produce the following key documents and position papers:

The University of Toronto produces highly skilled graduates, groundbreaking research and game-changing innovation. U of T provides Ontario with the knowledge, ideas and talent to compete in the global economy.
