Toronto Public Health says there are two new suspected cases of monkeypox in the city, as well as one probable case of the virus that’s under investigation.
The agency says all three cases are men — two in their 30s and one in their 20s.
It says the three men are doing well.
The agency says one of the three men had traveled to Montreal and was a contact of the first suspected case Toronto Public Health said it was investigating in the city over the weekend.
That first case involved a man in his 40s who had contact with someone who had recently travelled to Montreal.

Quebec health officials have reported a total of 15 confirmed cases across that province.
Last week, Quebec reported the first cases of the virus in Canada.
Monkeypox is a rare disease that comes from the same family of viruses that causes smallpox, which the World Health Organization declared eradicated around the globe in 1980.
In general, monkeypox does not spread easily between people and is transmitted through prolonged close contact, including direct contact with an infected person’s respiratory droplets, bodily fluids or sores.
Monkeypox is typically milder than smallpox and can cause fever, headache, muscle aches, exhaustion, swollen lymph nodes and lesions all over the body.
Health officials have said the risk posed by monkeypox is low.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The Sacramento County Division of Public Health on Tuesday said officials are investigating a case of monkeypox, which would make it the first known case in California. More testing still needs to be conducted, the health department said, but based on symptoms, it seems like it is indeed a case, especially since the patient just returned home from Europe, where the virus has been documented. The patient is isolating at home and is not in contact with any other people, the department said. "This case appears to be related to recent travel to Europe," Sacramento County Public Health Officer Dr. Olivia Kasirye said in a statement.
