SME Toronto Chapter 26 is one of the oldest SME chapters, founded in 1939. 
Our goal is to provide the manufacturing communities around Toronto and Ontario-wide with education, networking, and information-sharing opportunities through our workshops, plant tours, presentations, conferences, and social events.

SME's Toronto Chapter 26 Scholarship initiativeThe Joseph R. Benedetto Scholarship, was founded by Toronto Chapter 26 in the mid-nineteen-nineties to acknowledge the significant contribution to the Chapter by Joseph R. Benedetto, (1931-2013), a long-time member and past chapter chair. The goal of the scholarship is to support education in the engineering and manufacturing fields in Ontario.
