Toronto Homecoming

Join the Board in matching global-minded talent with Canadian companies

In order for the Toronto region to flourish, it is essential to be able to attract and retain top talent, yet many of our region’s top leaders and innovators leave to pursue opportunities elsewhere, often never to return. Toronto Homecoming, an exclusive networking event, aims to bring qualified Canadians working abroad and people with strong ties to the City, back to Toronto by connecting them with professional opportunities in the Region.

Toronto Homecoming is a program of the Toronto Region Board of Trade.  Since the event’s inception 5 years ago, over 400 participants have attended. Currently more than a third are back living in the Toronto region and many have found jobs with or through our corporate partners.  Toronto Homecoming has a broad international reach, having received applications from hundreds of people from dozens of countries across the globe.

Participation is limited and by application only. Applications open on April 7th and the event will take place from October 1 - 3. Click here to learn more, and to apply. If your company is interested in meeting these high caliber professionals with global experience, contact Tess O’Mara for information on partnership opportunities
