  • Form the imaginative centre of Toronto, attracting new audiences and engaging new communities
  • Continue to build collections that enhance the Gallery’s international profile and generate new exhibitions and research partners around the world
  • Be an international tourist destination that greatly enhances Toronto’s visibility globally
  • Stand as a model of educational programming on-site and online
  • Forge a new model for art museums internationally, and set a new standard of excellence in museum practice
