The Metropolis includes 76 parishes, two monastic communities (established in 1993), six homes for the homeless, four senior citizens' homes, and a nursing home. The School of Byzantine Music was established in 1991 to train chanters for the churches of the Metropolis. In addition to the School in Toronto, schools have been established in Montreal and Winnipeg.

Orthodox Voice is a half-hour weekly religious television program in Greek and English, produced by the Metropolitan Archbishop. It airs across Canada on Odyssey TV. It has attained an audience of up to 75,000, and has been on the air since March 1990. This is additionally supported by the Greek Orthodox Order of Canada, established in 1975. Orthodox Way is a monthly eight-page newspaper in Greek and English, in circulation since 1982. It contains substantial religious, catechetical, and news articles. The Office of Greek Education coordinates the work of Greek education. Greek day schools are functioning in Québec, subsidized by the Government of Québec.

The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Toronto (Canada) is a member of the Canadian Council of Churches. Through this means, the Metropolis expresses its opinion on crucial current social issues, and in general participates along with other churches in Canadian society.
