Quoted in Oscar Wilde in Canada, Kevin O'Brien, 1882
Complete Letters * (p172) says Wilde lectured this day in the Art Schools at Toronto. However, based on several newspapers reports of Wilde movements, Kevin O'Brien in Oscar Wilde in Canada (1882) appears to be correct that Wilde only chatted informally with students at the Institution Exhibition.
