About Us

InnovationToronto.com has been active since 2007.  The site has been modified and updated but, over time, has gotten slower to the point where it has begun to affect the visitor experience.  We have attempted a number of fixes but the reality is that InnovationToronto.com does not pass the new Google Core Web Vitals assessment and this means our search traffic and ranking has already been heavily impacted.  What to do???

Our Solution

Launch a fresh new Innovation Toronto site with the same great stories but MUCH better loading and performance.  We will be redoing all of our previous articles from InnovationToronto.com, over time, in order to completely exhaust our great volunteers and make your visit here more enjoyable and productive 🙂

We hope you enjoy your faster explorations . . .


In answer to the question: Where do your institution visit numbers come from?

Answer: They are the recorded visits to the institution pages from both InnovationToronto.com and InnovationToronto.org since January of 2020.

About Us (from InnovationToronto.com)

For over 15 years, Innovation Toronto has posted daily selections from the multitude of important research and development announcements published by universities, research institutes and science | technology media from around the world.

Innovation Toronto publishes stories and announcements that, in our opinion, have the potential to change our lives – or, to indicate different and important approaches or ways of thinking. While focusing as much as possible on opportunities, we do not shy away from the challenges and potential threats from rapid change.  Overall, after fourteen years of observing, we are cautiously optimistic.

The selections are intended to expand awareness and interest while providing an overview of global innovation and discovery.  The big hope is that it will help get everyone more interested in science and how research and discoveries could affect our everyday lives.  We are moving rapidly from science fiction to science friction and there is a real need to understand what may be coming next.

We are working backwards through 20,000+ posts to add the latest Google and Bing news to each post.  So, regardless of how old the actual post is, you will always have the latest updates on each topic.  We hope this makes each visit worthwhile even if the original article is somewhat out-of-date.  We appreciate your patience as it is going to take our volunteers some time to get through all of the edits.

Innovation Toronto, via its founder, received The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for Science and Technology. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was created in 2012 to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. The Medal honours Canadians (organizations) who have made significant contributions to Canadian society.

Innovation Toronto is made possible by volunteers and contributors from around the world.  We thank all of them for their valuable ongoing contributions and insights.
