Canada's only design promotion centre, this gallery exhibits the latest in fashion, graphic design and ergonomics. Named after its location in the former Toronto Stock Exchange building, the centre also boasts the original trading floor, with its historic murals intact. The mural depicting "Work" is particularly fascinating, with its use of colour and technique. International, national and local designers are on display in the exhibition hall and, while there is an admission charge to view their creations, the Design Effectiveness Centre is free.
