Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners with you question.

The plant in the photo does look like the night blooming jasmine (Cestrum nocturnum), however I can tell you that there are many other species in the genus Cestrum and it is possible that you have one of the other species.  You can see photos of the different species on the link below that the leaves are very similar, but they can only be distinguished from the flower bloom.

Enjoy your jasmine!
