This is the list of disruptions in Toronto due to the global IT outage

A global technology outage impacting businesses around the world has led to major disruptions in the GTA and other parts of Ontario. Cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike said the issue is affecting Microsoft 365 apps and services.

Here is a look at how GTA residents are impacted:


Air travel

Porter Airlines has cancelled all flights until noon and Pearson International Airport says U.S. airlines, including America, United, and Delta, are reporting issues. Canadian airlines, including Westjet, Air Canada, Flair, and Sunwing are operating as usual, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) confirmed to CP24.


The TTC says service is not impacted by the outage and systems have not been affected. Metrolinx says while trains and buses are operating as scheduled today, customers may have difficulty accessing their PRESTO accounts online and through the mobile app. PRESTO cards can be topped up at GO stations, the provincial transit agency said.
