U of T Bring Our Children to Work Day 2019

This year’s U of T Bring Our Children to Work Day for the St. George Campus will take place on Thursday, May 2, 2019.

This annual opportunity invites appointed faculty, librarians and staff to bring children in Grades 4 to 7 for an exciting day of activities and to learn more about your work.



The day begins with a keynote by U of T Professor Marcel Danesi, then tours in various departments during the morning, followed by lunch that will be provided in several venues. Parents and guardians must accompany their children for lunch.

Children will then spend the afternoon shadowing their parent / guardian at their place of work. Managers are asked to be flexible with employee schedules that day where possible.

You can review the day’s schedule of available activities and tours on our website in advance of the registration opening date (April 11).



Registration is required. We will begin taking registrations online on Thursday, April 11 at 7:30am. A registration link will appear on the event information page on April 11 at 7:30am. You must submit one form per child.

Space is limited—the online registration form operates on a first-come, first-serve basis for each completed submission.
