Atrium on Bay (sometimes promoted as simply "Atrium") is a retail and office complex in Toronto, Canada. It was built on the former site of the Ford Hotel on the north side of Dundas Street West, extending from Yonge Street to Bay Street. The 14-floor building was built in 1981 with two floors of retail stores. As part of the PATH network, it has underground connections to Dundas subway station and the Toronto Coach Terminal located across Bay Street.

Atrium on Bay's major tenants include the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, which has a branch in the retail concourse as well as offices on several floors, and various arms of the Government of Ontario, including a land registry office, an outlet of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, and the main prize claiming site for the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation.

Other retail tenants include Muji. Restaurants include St. Louis Bar and Grill on the north side, Pickle Barrel Grand at the Yonge Street entrance, Red Lobster, Spring Rolls, and a food court on the lower level.

Atrium on Bay was used as a shopping mall in the Canadian TV drama Flashpoint. The interior was also used in the 1983 PBS TV movie Overdrawn at the Memory Bank.
