ISA Toronto Section

Welcome to the ISA Toronto Section Website:

The Toronto Section is here to serve the members of the International Society of Automation (ISA). Our goal is to provide the local members of the GTA and ISA members at large with the means to stay connected with current trends in the automation technology industries and provide the venue whereby we can meet and network with other professionals in the community.

Recent boundary changes with ISA HQ have now designated the Toronto ISA Section 13 to be part of the International Society of Automation, Eastern North America District.
