Tim Cook made his first appearance in Canada today as the head of Apple with an unannounced visit to Toronto this morning.

Just before noon local time, Cook made a surprise visit to the company's retail store at the Eaton Centre shopping mall, reports The Globe and Mail. Cook was pictured alongside young students attending an Apple Field Trip, an in-store initiative that introduces kids to coding, podcasting, and other creative skills.


Cook's stop in Toronto follows a trip to Harlow College near London, England on Friday, in line with Apple's announcement that its Everyone Can Code initiative has recently expanded to 70 colleges and universities across Europe. Last week, Cook also visited Reno, where Apple broke ground on a new data center.

Cook has served as Apple's CEO since August 24, 2011, after the late Steve Jobs resigned from the position for a final time.

Update: After visiting the Eaton Centre Apple Store while in Toronto, Tim Cook attended a Maple Leafs game with hockey analyst and former player Nick Kypreos.

I always think it's good for CEO to interact with their employees/customers at the store level. Most employees at a store level never speak or see their CEO of a company. Tim Cook having more involvement with the store level shows a sense of who he is.

I hope Tim Cook saw how small & ****** the Eaton Centre store is... So outdated, so tiny, so overcrowded...

Well, answer then why there are no white kids in that class. I do live in Canada part of each year. By the way, how do you know what my gender or colo(u)r is?
First, how do you know those are all the kids in that class? It's a narrow-angle shot in a cramped store, centred on the CEO.

Second, why does it matter?

Third, no one said anything about your colour.
