Announcing the First Round of Talks from TEDxToronto 2015


On October 22, 2015, some of Toronto’s greatest thinkers and change-makers joined together onstage at TEDxToronto to deliver powerful talks and performances that embodied our theme, “Thresholds”.

More than one thousand delegates shared in an unforgettable experience at Koerner Hall at the TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning. We had attendees join us at the official satellite viewing event, and thousands watched the live stream at tedxtoronto.com.

We are grateful for the extraordinary contributions of our 2015 partners, sponsors, supporters, speakers, performers and volunteers. Without all of you the conference would not have been possible. Thank you for your time, your contributions and your passion in helping us share ideas worth spreading.

We are so pleased to share with you the first round of talks from TEDxToronto 2015. We hope that these talks and others will encourage you to start conversations and relationships with other passionate thinkers.
