Our History

The Board's first headquarters, built in 1892.

Through its nearly two centuries of service, Toronto Region Board of Trade continues to stand as a testament to the power of convening, connecting, and championing. Officially founded in 1845 by an act of the legislature of Canada, the Board has mirrored the evolution of Toronto itself and remains the heartbeat of Toronto’s business community.
