What Are The Tallest Structures In Canada?


Canada certainly has some impressively tall buildings. The CN Tower, of course, is probably the most well-known of the tallest structures in the country, though it is not technically considered a building the same way that skyscrapers in Canada are.

The CN Tower was in fact the World’s Tallest Free-Standing Structure as considered by the Guinness Book of World Records for an astounding 34+ years. The American Society of Civil Engineers classified it as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World in 1995, and it’s still one of the most popular destinations in the country, particularly for tourists.


But as with most records, there’s always a chance that something new could come along and steal the CN Tower’s crown. Structures like the Inco Superstack at the Inco Copper Cliff smelter in Sudbury, Ontario and First Canadian Place (once called the First Bank Building), a skyscraper in the Financial District of Toronto, Ontario don’t quite beat the Tower’s record, and there are new buildings in development that will come close.

Currently, The One, located at Yonge Street and Bloor Street West in Toronto, is under construction, and when it’s complete, it will be Canada’s tallest building, although it will still be behind the CN Tower as the country’s tallest man-made structure.


The Stantec Tower is also under construction, and it will be 66 storeys high once it’s complete. That means it will be the tallest building in the country outside of Toronto once construction has ended. So while it won’t be in first place as far as tallest structures in all of Canada, the tower will still be something to boast about.

There are several other projects under construction in Toronto that will end up on the list for tallest buildings in Canada when they’re finally built. But none of them will top out the CN Tower, and they’re all slated to not be quite as tall as The One when it’s complete. But at least they’ll be in very good company.
