Well if you're asking only for the greater toronto area, none.

If you're asking about ontario in general sarnia, ontario has the ex-Durham Region Transit Orion 5 running

If you're asking about canada in general, I heard an Orion 5 might still be running with one of the random companies in quebec, you got beaver bus lines in winnipeg (Less a system and more a charter company though), CMBC in vancouver. There's also the Fortress of louisburg Orion 5, but i'm not sure what's going on with that one.

In addition to the ones in the post by @Orion6025, all I can think of is Everett Transit's 5s. Until Dec. 2018, There were some TTC Orion 5s at Birchmount, but they don't exist anymore.

Oh well if we’re counting the USA then there are a few more

Sonoma county transit, Yolo county, union city (i believe their only 5 is still running...), shuttle bus, duke university, cyride, dash alexandria transit company, wmata (technically, though they are non revenue)
