Training Location

Training is located at 625 Church St. (also known as the Traders Building). The training room is located on the 5th floor. There is limited seating in the lobby area. Staff will open the door and direct you to the training room.

The building is a short walk from the Bloor-Yonge subway station.

There is paid parking at the back of this building, but the daily rate is high ($50 maximum rate). Street parking is available on Charles Street, Hayden Street, and Isabella Street.

Second Location in 2020

In 2020 a second location will be available to accommodate the increase in demand. The second location will be in the Cliffcrest Plaza, 3049 Kingston Rd. Plaza parking is available, and the main entrance is only marked by the City of Toronto logo, as this location is not open to the public. Kennedy Station is 5km away, and is a minimum 20 minute transit ride from this station.

Once staff have completed training, the access manager or designate need to complete the SMIS User Access Request form and have the staff sign the SMIS user agreement.

Once completed, these forms are emailed to smishelp@toronto.ca.
