About Toronto Metropolitan University 

At the intersection of mind and action, Toronto Met is on a transformative path to becoming Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. Integral to this path is the placement of equity, diversity and inclusion as fundamental to our institutional culture. Our current academic plan outlines each as core values and we work to embed them in all that we do.

We welcome those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest sense. In addition, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment in Canada, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, Indigenous peoples of North America, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or 2SLGBTQ+. Please note that all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, applications from Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.

In April 2022, the university announced our new name of Toronto Metropolitan University, which will be implemented in a phased approach. Learn more about our next chapter.

About the School of Medicine 

Toronto Metropolitan University is embarking on a new chapter that will help shape the future of health care in Ontario.  On March 15, 2022, the Government of Ontario announced it will be moving forward with Toronto Metropolitan University's school of medicine in Brampton.  The School of Medicine will be designed from the ground up to provide a new model for primary care – one that is community-driven, intentionally inclusive, and that trains doctors whose cultural awareness and humility are as crucial as their medical skills. Reflecting the university’s core values, the future school is rooted in five major pillars:

  1. Focusing on community centric primary care and the social determinants of health.
  2. Providing more culturally respectful care to communities.
  3. Leveraging innovation and technology in practices to improve quality of care and patient outcomes.
  4. Providing future physicians with the skills to develop interdisciplinary networks of healthcare to achieve better outcomes for patients in the communities.
  5. Focusing on supporting seniors as a growing portion of our society gets older.
