An Ikea spokesperson told CBC News that the monkey was first spotted in the parking lot of the Ikea store located near Leslie Street and Highway 401.
Staff at the store quickly contacted animal control.
The monkey was kept confined until animal services arrived.
“It must be somebody’s pet because he was wearing a jacket,” the spokesperson said, referring to the monkey, which was wearing a miniature, brown, shearling-type jacket.
