Toronto was the very first city to host Doors Open in North America! 150 architecturally, historically, culturally and socially significant buildings open their doors for the weekend and highlight the people who built the city. All for free!

15 Decades of Canadian Architecture

Canada’s largest Doors Open event and one of the three largest Doors Open events in the world, Toronto’s version is a free annual event held on the last weekend of May that offers residents and visitors an opportunity to take a peek behind the doors of 150 architecturally, historically and culturally significant buildings across the city, many of which are normally off-limits to the public.

In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, in 2017 the theme is Fifteen Decades of Canadian Architecture and features highlights from each decade since the 1860s, as well as a cluster of pre-Confederation sites!
