ORT Toronto is a branch of World ORT which was founded in 1880. Our mission is to provide high quality education, training and professional development programs to individuals who lack opportunity due to social, economic or other forms of deprivation, here at home and in 30 countries around the world.
Over 300,000 students annually are provided with the opportunity to succeed and achieve to their full potential in employment, community leadership, and social and economic entrepreneurship.
World ORT programs are tailored to meet local needs, since such a large and diverse range of individuals and communities benefit from our activities.
ORT is bridging the gap between ability and opportunity.
"ORT's activity does not base itself upon charity but upon self help...I want to assure you of my greatest admiration for the cause in which you are so nobly engaged." Albert Einstein
