Ryerson has a mission to serve societal need and a long-standing commitment to engaging its community. Guided by a bold Academic Plan, an ambitious research agenda, and a Master Plan to revitalize the campus and surrounding neighbourhood, Ryerson is the most applied-to university in Ontario relative to available spaces, and its reputation with business and community leaders continues to rise. Ryerson offers more than 100 undergraduate and graduate programs. Culturally diverse and inclusive, the university is home to 38,950 students, including 2,300 master's and PhD students, nearly 2,700 faculty and staff, and more than 140,000 alumni worldwide.

The university's focus on innovation and entrepreneurship is represented most distinctly by the Digital Media Zone, a place for students to collaborate and bring their digital ideas to the marketplace. Ryerson is reshaping the downtown core of Toronto with three new buildings: the Mattamy Athletic Centre at the Gardens, the Ryerson Image Centre in the heart of campus, and a Student Learning Centre on Yonge Street.

Setting ambitious goals is driven by our culture and our passion to perform. The Foundation has pioneered many successful types of fundraising including mega lotteries and large-scale events recruiting thousands of participants/fundraisers such as our Rexall OneWalk to Conquer Cancer and Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, to name a few.

The formation of Easter Seals Ontario can be traced back to November 28, 1922, when representatives from 10 Rotary Clubs met in Windsor, Ontario to discuss the inadequate resources and support available for the province’s children with physical disabilities. Recognizing a need for action, they formed the Ontario Society for Crippled Children, inspired by the American organization of the same name, which had been recently created by Ohio businessman, Edgar Allen. Some of Easter Seals’ early goals were treatment for children with physical disabilities and public awareness. During “Health Week” in 1931, Easter Seals launched its first public information campaign for the universal pasteurization of milk to help prevent the spread of tuberculosis. Easter Seals would continue to conduct public awareness campaigns on a variety of relevant topics in years to come. In 1934, Easter Seals initiated its first public fundraising initiative, held at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. Although the organizers were highly enthusiastic, the 500 guests failed to meet the revenue target. Fortunately, enough money was raised to hire Easter Seals’ first full-time District Nurse, Gretta Ross. This allowed Easter Seals to expand its services and improve treatment of the children in its care. The Ontario Government turned to Easter Seals in 1937 for expert assistance following a devastating poliomyelitis (polio) outbreak. In the same year, Easter Seals opened the first Canadian camp for children with physical disabilities. Fifty-five percent of the children who attended the camp that summer had polio. In 1947, the first Easter Seals’ mail campaign was introduced in Ontario, with the goal of raising $150,000. The same year, the first March is Easter Seals Month campaign was launched including the annual presentation of official seals to the Prime Minister. 1989 Easter Seals TimmyLynn Berry was chosen as the first “Timmy” to represent all children with physical disabilities. The concept of “Timmy” was borrowed from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, in which Timmy is depicted as child with a physical disability who has indomitable spirit. In 1979, Nadia de Franco of Toronto was chosen to be the first “Tammy.” In 1952, Easter Seals fundraising efforts were given a lift thanks to several prominent Canadian sports figures. Champion wrestler “Whipper” Billy Watson began raising awareness and dollars through innovative fundraising activities that continue to this day such as Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids. This also marked the year that a group of sports writers introduced what is now know as the Conn Smythe Sports Celebrities Dinner and Auction. In a plan to bring health and happiness to more children with physical disabilities, Easter Seals opened the Ontario Crippled Children’s Centre, now known as Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, on May 16, 1962. It was considered the most outstanding treatment centre for children with physical disabilities in the world.
