The Toronto Harbour Light

The Toronto Harbour Light is an automated lighthouse at Vicki Keith Point on the Leslie Street Spit in Toronto, Canada.


The concrete structure was completed in 1974 by the then Toronto Harbour Commission. It is now operated by the Toronto Port Authority. The lighthouse is powered by a solar panel and directs shipping traffic along the Eastern Channel into Toronto Harbour.
