Toronto continues to be a major centre for the hospitality industry in Canada and is home to many of the top hotel companies in the world including Four Seasons Hotel & Resorts, Fairmont Raffles Hotels International, Marriot Hotels of Canada, and Delta Hotels & Resorts. We are fortunate to have several of these companies represented within our membership.
