Alumni Reunion Events
Victoria hosts reunion events across Canada and beyond throughout the year. In addition to regional reunions, Victoria hosts its flagship reunion event on campus during the University of Toronto Alumni Reunion weekend, celebrating honoured years on a five-year cycle. Due to the pandemic, events will be held virtually for those celebrating a special year in both 2020 and 2021. We look forward to honouring the graduating years ending in 0, 1, 5 or 6.
Activities include lectures, family events, young alumni events (shakers), and the presentation of the Chancellor's Medals for honoured years.
