Apparently according to CTV News 1130 news broadcast, an Air Canada A330 is off the runway at YYZ, in several feet of dirt, with heavy damage to landing gear and engine.

More to come.

Would bet it is 876 to EDDF. Any updates?

Doubt it, because of this statement...
Landed 6 minutes ago (taxiing to terminal 1)

Unless it fixed itself! :P

I searched Twitter for tweets about this. According to what I see, it seems like it is the A330 in Star Alliance Livery ( C-GHLM), and it was headed to LHR.

Been confirmed that it was 876 to FRA that this occurred with. Also conflicting reports if this was just off a taxiway or indeed the runway.

It appears to be at D6 and runway 06L. So that would put it on the runway when it occurred.

C-GHLM sounds right, but HLM was indeed headed to FRA tonight (not LHR)...So it must be AC876.

Yeah that left main gear Definitely has seen better days.

All passengers and crew have deplaned. It looks like it may have failed as they were going around the taxiway to 6R.

Mosquitoes are bad if anyone comes out LOL. Put some Off on!

I believe this is YYZ's last flight to Europe of the day. As a passenger, I'd hope to get a night in a hotel and another day in Toronto out of this. Wouldn't be too thrilled about having to wait at a deserted airport at night, to then arrive with a 10 hours delay or so. How annoying that would be.

Nothing of course compared to what some Air Canada employees are facing right now. But still annoying.

Looks like the inside bogie went off taxiway D6, in my view it would not cause any damage to the landing gear or engine as reported in the OP.

They would unload the pax, cargo, and fuel from the aircraft and just tow it out.

I was on a Jazz Dash 8 that went off a taxiway at YYZ several years back, it was also the last flight to our destination (YSB). They did indeed put us up in hotels, though it took several hours to deplane, bus us back and process the 20 passengers on board (we bounced to a halt shortly after 10 pm, but the first passengers weren't sent off to hotels until after 1 am!).

Though, the hotel was a dump, and was in the area of the aiport (ie far from downtown). I wouldn't hold my breath that the passengers on this flight get "another day in Toronto" in any meaningful sense, unless they want to pay for a cab downtown and back. More like: late arrival at a hotel in the airport strip, and back to the aiport mid-day to await new flight in early / mid aft.

It was an annoying experience, notwithstanding the hotel bed.

Well, it's a minor incident in the larger scheme of things. But what DOES happen to a pilot who taxi's off a runway on a clear night.... Does it go on his "record?" Testing and retraining? Suspension? Demoted to second officer for a year? Seems like a pretty costly mistake. Also when one airplane clips another while taxiing (there's been a lot of that lately.)

Will the pilot be disciplined over this incident? What does this sort of incident do to a pilot's career, if anything? And what does the airline do with the passengers waitin in FRA for their return flight? Do they fly an empty plane over or try and rebook everyone on different carriers or flights?

I am sure they will be rebooked on other airlines or onto other AC flights out of FRA.

Difficult to say from that point now. Depends on the reason why it happened.

Well, the guy may be an excellent pilot, knowing his (or her?) business piloting a plane. But maybe some driving lessons maybe appropriate.   

Where I live I would get fined for getting stuck in the mud.
