Right at our doorstep, Branksome students have access to Canada's largest, most multicultural city and the many cultural, educational and recreational highlights of Toronto

A rich weekend program for Residence students includes supervised off-campus trips to local attractions such as Niagara Falls and Ripley's Aquarium.
