The Canadian Toy Association

Toys for the North

Print Me


Over the past 5 years, generous Canadian Toy Association members have donated over $420,000 in new toys to the Toys for the North Toy Drive. Toys are collected around CTA's Hot Toys for the Holidays and Hot Toys of Summer events as well as at the Canadian Toy Fair. 




Special thanks to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who identify communities most in need; coordinate shipment to the far north and sorting and gift wrapping of all the toys; and then hand deliver the toys...sometimes even by snowmobile and sled!




Thomson Terminals generously warehouses toys collected throughout the year, processes and then ships them by truck to air terminals where the toys begin their journey north.

In 2015 follow the adventures of #LeMutt and the #ToysForTheNorth, our Plush Puppy Toy is making the journey to Northern Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador with all the Toys!


On November 23, 2015 the Toys were sorted by volunteers from the RCMP and OPP so that all the little girls and boys get age and interest appropirate toys. On November 24th the Toys made the journey from Thomson Terminals to CFB Trenton. Next Stop - Northern Canada!
