The Convent, Toronto
St. John’s Convent is located in a quiet urban area of North Toronto adjacent to 25 acres of parkland that guests are free to enjoy. We are easily accessible from the airport via major highways, and from downtown Toronto via public transit. While we have ample parking, we encourage ecological responsibility in the use of public transit and car-pooling when possible.
