As one of the foremost Departments of Chemistry in Canada, we have been active in promoting awareness of Chemistry in the Toronto Area. We have sponsored a number of events in 2010 to date promoting chemistry in high schools and the community in our "Ask a Laureate" seminar, participation in Science Rendezvous and the Chemistry National Olympiad. We plan to incorporate 2011 IYC awareness into all programs in the coming months. See out website for further information.

Also to increase 2011 IYC exposure, the IYC logo is being added to the sleeve of our University of Toronto Department of Chemistry jackets and shirts. Any proceeds will be used to sponsor chemistry events in our community. A cap with the IYC log is planned as well.
