Who We Are
We The North. In 1995, the NBA brought professional basketball back to the city where the first-ever NBA game was played and the Toronto Raptors took their first step towards capturing the attention of basketball fans right across Canada. Today, as the only franchise outside the United States, the Raptors and their fans take pride in their role in the growing success of basketball globally and in the club’s climb as it works to deliver the first NBA Championship to its city, its country and its fans. In 2016, the Raptors and the city welcomed the world of basketball to Toronto for the NBA All Star Weekend, forever cementing Toronto’s reputation as a basketball hotbed.
We celebrate the diversity, individuality, and personality of our peers, striving to be the best in class, in every class. We believe in Respect, Resilience, Commitment, and Ambition. We work for, with, and around the people that inspire us to try, persist, and achieve more.
Our work goes beyond games, seasons, trophies, and tours. Our success is measured by more than a scoreboard. Our team is stronger when we stand united. We create, we celebrate, we build, and we become better!
What we choose to do next, means everything! It defines greatness, builds character, makes history, and brings the world to its feet.
