The former Canada Malting grain elevator in Toronto, ON.

At one time Toronto had three concrete elevators on the shores of Lake Ontario – Canada Malting, Maple Leaf Mills, and Victory Soya Mills. The Maple Leaf Mills complex was demolished in 1983. Portions of the other two complexes remain and are designed as heritage structures.
