Heritage Toronto is looking for three Emerging Historians to work with them on an exciting self-guided tour project as part of the City’s StrollTO program, developing a total of 30 neighbourhood itineraries with diverse points of interests.

Applicants should demonstrate a familiarity and passion for sharing the stories of Toronto’s unique neighbourhoods. The successful candidates will have a background in research and writing, preferably in history, architecture, journalism, or urban design, and a proven history of working independently to meet firm deadlines.
