They're just downsizing and trying to focus on their larger markets.

It's sad in a sense because Toronto has a decent sized market but it doesn't necessarily receive much recognition from other markets in the grand scheme of things (most people from elsewhere don't realize there's actually quite a significant amount of work happening here). But with IMG buying out our fashion week, I feel like it's a step in the right direction for Toronto.

There are rumours swirling around about Wilhelmina opening in Toronto but no confirmation on whether that's fact or fiction.

there are more people in the state of California than the entire COUNTRY Canada.

I can see why the market might be too small for them to keep a dedicated office in Toronto.
