Science at Fort York

  • Fort York Vistor Centre 250 Fort York Boulevard Toronto, ON, M5V 3K9 Canada (map)

Join us for a special night of celebration as we take a look back at Toronto’s scientific heritage in the fantastic surroundings of the Fort York Visitor Centre, one of the city's most historic spaces.

Discover the incredible, globe-trotting life of Captain J.H. Lefroy, RCIScience’s fourth president, and manager of Upper Canada’s first major scientific experiment.

Uncover the namesake of Canada’s highest peak, during the presentation of the 2018 William Edmond Logan Award.

And help us mark the 140th anniversary of Standard Time, an innovation brought to the world by Canada.

This special evening supporting RCIScience features presentations and interactive activities, alongside plenty of beer, wine, a signature cocktail and hors d'oeuvres!

We're delighted to announce Science Everywhere are hosting another #FreestyleSocial at our Science at Fort York event next week! If you haven't yet participated in one of these discussions, you're in for a real treat! A silly debate for serious problems, Science Everywhere get to the heart of public issues, asking everything from 'should we pee in the shower?!' to 'should we abolish daylight savings time?' Join us and have your say.

A special discount is available for RCIScience and Friends of Fort York members - check your inboxes for details or contact for more.

Tickets available through Eventbrite.

Paid Green P parking is available nearby or take the 509 Streetcar from Union. More directions at:
