Toronto's First Post Office

260 Adelaide St E, Toronto, ON M5A 1N1

Toronto's First Post Office is the only surviving example of a post office that functioned as a department of the British Royal Mail in Canada. After its use as a post office, it was part of a Roman Catholic boys' school and later a cold storage building. The building now houses a museum and a full-service post office, run by the Town of York Historical Society.

The building opened in 1833, before York became the City of Toronto. The style of the building is late Georgian architecture.
