University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international
source for discovery, education and patient care.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community
and help others. At UHN, we welcome your contribution and offer different ways you can help so you can find one that suits you.

This past week, the Executive Team discussed the U.S. travel ban, what the University of Toronto is doing to help those affected and what University Health Network can do to support our students and people who work here who travel internationally for their work in education, research and care. In listening to the news reports about individuals who have been denied entry to the U.S. and questioned on a variety of matters including their individual support for the Trump Presidency, it is evident that there is no clarity, that the travel ban is being interpreted by individuals at each border point with little or no consistency, and that the issue of the travel ban is now headed to the Supreme Court of the United States, given yesterday's ruling and Trump's statements about returning to the court.
Given all of this, the Executive Team wants to make it clear that we will fully support individual decisions about travel to the U.S. and will do what we can to help anyone caught in this situation. This includes:
It is up to all of us to maintain an open, free and accepting society for all people in Canada. It is up to each of us to stand up and speak up if we see actions or speech that isn't supportive of these values. This has been a particularly difficult time for those who are Muslim and we must all support, encourage and celebrate people of the Muslim faith – and all faiths.
As a country, we have recently opened our doors and our hearts to refugees from Syria. However, this is but one instance in a tradition of openness and inclusion which represents the best of who we are. Canada is far from perfect and its history includes times and actions which reflect the very worst in the human condition but we must keep working together to create and maintain a better society for all of the people who call this land home.
