The Toronto Mail was a newspaper in Toronto, Ontario, which through corporate mergers became first The Mail and Empire, and then The Globe and Mail.

The Mail was founded in 1872 by T. C. Patterson.[1] It was the city's conservative paper until it declared itself independent of any political party. That prompted Prime Minister John A. Macdonald to found the Toronto Empire in 1887. The Mail eventually merged with the Toronto Empire to form The Mail and Empire in 1895. The Mail and Empire would in 1936 merge with Brown's Globe to form The Globe and Mail.
