Toronto is a city known for its glitz and glam, so it only makes sense that the schools in the city and surrounding areas that have produced talented alumni turned celebrities. There are programs at various universities in and around Toronto that have created stars that are larger than life. They've taken guidance from schools like the University of Toronto, York, Ryerson and so on. It's great to know that people from around here can become something big, because who knows? Maybe the next great thing to come out of Toronto will be YOU!
