"Proud alumni growing the University of Michigan community in the Greater Toronto Area"

The University of Michigan Alumni Club of Toronto was established in 2011 and serves several thousand alumni in the Greater Toronto Area. As an organization, we strive to reconnect and grow the Michigan community within the GTA by hosting events, fundraisers, and viewing parties. We welcome all University of Michigan graduates and their family and friends to our events.

UMACT encourages all Michigan alumni in the Greater Toronto  Area to create a website profile. Your member profile will be included in the member directory and you can opt-in to the UMACT quarterly newsletter. It is a great way to stay up to date with UMACT.
