About Waddingtons


Waddington's is Canada's Auction House– providing expert advice to Canadian and international clients since 1850. Our team of specialists are able to advise you on virtually everything you may collect or need to have appraised.

Each year, thousands of items are offered in our regular estate auctions, online auctions, monthly art auctions, specialty, and fine art auctions. Responding to the evolving needs of our clients, we also provide consultative services in all aspects of collection and estate management.

Waddington's – Toronto

The majority of our major auctions are conducted in our main gallery at 275 King Street East in downtown Toronto. This location is also home base to our team of specialists and administrative support.

Waddington's also conducts monthly online auctions representing offerings from our all departments.

Waddington's – Cobourg

Our tradition of estate auctions continues at our auction facility in Cobourg, on the shores of Lake Ontario in Northumberland County. These weekly auctions of eclectic household items provide unique opportunities for collectors to discover unexpected treasures. In addition to the weekly estate auctions, we are pleased to present periodic art, fine furniture and oriental rug specialty auctions. 

Waddington's - Transitions

Transitions builds on our respected legacy of providing downsizing and estate management services. This one-stop service is based on our commitment to client service and supported by Waddington’s team of specialists.
