After three years as assistant coach for the Ajax first academy team, Winter signed a three-year contract with Toronto FC in January 2011. Winter brought former colleague Bob de Klerk from Ajax to be his assistant coach, while Paul Mariner was also brought in the same day as Director of Player Development.

Winter won his first trophy with Toronto in early July as Toronto defeated Vancouver 32 on aggregate to capture its third consecutive Canadian Championship, thereby earning a berth in the 201112 CONCACAF Champions League. Winter then guided Toronto to the Champions League semifinals, the first time a Canadian club had progressed that far in the competition. Toronto eventually lost 73 on aggregate to Santos Laguna.

However, TFC began the 2012 MLS season with nine straight losses, the worst start to a season in the history of the MLS. TFC managed to win its tenth match 10 versus Philadelphia on 26 May 2012, but it was not enough to save Winter's job, as the club announced on 7 June 2012 that he would be replaced by the director of player development, Paul Mariner.
