Wireless Toronto is a volunteer non-profit community wireless network in Toronto. Wireless Toronto began in 2005 and has been setting up no-cost public wireless Internet access around the Greater Toronto Area and exploring ways to use Wi-Fi technology to strengthen local community and culture.

Wireless Toronto hotspots are created using Linksys WRT54G wireless routers running OpenWrt and WifiDog. Currently, the largest hotspot is in the historic St. Lawrence Market in downtown Toronto.
