Toronto Influencers (cont’d)
When we created the first iteration of this list last year, it generated some great feedback from the influencer community. A few people noted that it wasn’t definitive – this made us realize that we need to make a more comprehensive list.
If we’re being honest, it’s nearly impossible to list all of Toronto micro-influencers, but we’re constantly growing our network at Node and being introduced to new creators. This list will change and grow as more influencers come to light.
