Metro Toronto Convention Centre
Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The health and safety of our visitors and staff remains our highest priority during this unprecedented time.
As an Agency of the Government of Ontario, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre has been regularly communicating with the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries (MHSTCI) on the developments of COVID-19.
On March 30th, the Government of Ontario extended the Declaration of Emergency and associated emergency measures, including the prohibition of gatherings of more than five people, in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. The Declaration will remain in effect until April 14, 2020 based on the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health.
Our administrative team remains available to answer your questions and our management team is working diligently to return enquires promptly.
MTCC Increased Preventative Measures
• Our cleaning services team has increased the disinfection of commonly used surfaces, including escalator handrails and door handles.
• Extra hand sanitizing stations and Covid-19 virus specific isopropyl alcohol disinfectant wipes are in use throughout the Centre to enhance hand and surface disinfectant efforts.
• Elevated safe food handling procedures and increased safe service protocols for all food & beverage operations within the Centre have been implemented under the advice of Health Canada and in consultation with Toronto Public Health.
• Signs encouraging proper hygiene inside washrooms have been posted.
