There is a Challenger in Toronto but it's only for Ladies

It's nice to see that the Vancouver challenger is later in the calendar this year. Players will not have to choose between Vancouver and Canadian Open qualifying this year.
Truly a good change to the Canadian calendar

Canada has a big event, they have challengers and Futures events as it is.

If it doesn't exist then it's a financial issue, either defunct or another venue took over the licence.

What happened to the Grand Prix Toronto Tournament in the 80s?

Apparently, Canada used to have 2 Atp events back in the 80s. We had the Rogers Cup and then we had an atp 250 event in Toronto. This was back in the 80s and now we only have 1 event - the Rogers Cup. Well..I say we should bring it back. Canada needs more atp level events.

Does anyone have any ideas?
