Does U of T charge for alumni networking services?

Organizations using names such as The International Alumni Association (IAA) and Worldwide Association of Notable Alumni (WANA) have been contacting U of T alumni and selling an expensive professional networking service.

These organizations are not affiliated with or endorsed by the University of Toronto in any way.

U of T does offer a browsable listing of alumni groups that you can use, without charge, to find fellow alumni in your geographical area, who share your interests, or who graduated from your faculty or college. In addition, all U of T alumni are automatically considered members of the U of T Alumni Association (UTAA). The UTAA does not charge a membership fee.

You may also wish to find out more about the University of Toronto’s own career development services for alumni.
