About - Toronto Standard
Toronto Standard is a digital publication for Toronto’s Creative Class with featured influencer profiles, curated cool products and produced event experiences to amplify your entrepreneurial lifestyle.
The Standard lived once before, publishing as a newspaper between 1848-1850. When our predecessor shut its presses, Toronto was a trading village of 23,000. There were no izakayas or charcuterie restaurants, people drove horses and it was still possible to contract rickets. How things have changed. Now we have dog bakeries and yerba mate cafs, smart phones and smart buildings. We don’t care much whether people call today’s Toronto a “world class city”, though we do know that it’s a global city. As such, the Standard provides a forum to look at life in other cities, and the challenges big urban centres face in the 21st century.
Now headquartered in the handsomely restored Burroughes Building, a Queen West landmark, the Standard presents a provocative blend of interviews, cool products and video that explores Toronto as a hub of creativity and innovation — while never afraid to give the city the kick in the pants it sometimes deserves.
