I'm planning a vacation for me and a few friends New Years Eve, and I'm wondering what the drinking age is in Toronto. I know Montreal it's 18, but I hear from 50% of the people that it's 19 in Toronto, the other half says it's 18. I don't want to plan a beer trip to a state where we can't drink!

Pulled this from toronto.worldweb.com:
"The legal drinking age in Canada varies between the different provinces and territories: In Alberta, Manitoba and Québec the legal drinking age is 18 years, for all remaining provinces and territories the legal age is 19 years."

Any place with a bouncer, expect to have your ID checked. Some bartendes will also ask for your ID. I'm approaching 30, and I still have my ID checked on a constant basis.
19 is the buying cigarettes and drinking age in T.O. Still not as bad as 21 in the States, however.
Before I left, some of the clubs downtown were checking people's driver's licenses with a scanner to make sure your ID's legit. Apparently, I was told by one of the bouncers who I knew rather well, those scanners take down your personal info and sell it to different companies.

Don't try buying at the Skydome even if you are well over 19 unless you have either a US or Canadian ID. The dipshits there don't seem to realize that there are other countries in the world too who also issue photo ID.
