The Toronto Harbour Light

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

Construction[edit]

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.
