My question... is there an equivalant setup that's conducive to and/or required for snowstorms in the GTA? I.e. if we don't see X+Y+Z, we don't need to work up any false hopes here in the GTA.

I had intended to call it a clipper, but I don't think that's accurate. I can trace it back to a system coming in from the Pacific, north through the Yukon and Northwest Territories, and then SE in a clipper-like track, and out through the Maritimes and NFLD. The GFS keeps it organized as a sub-1000 mb low all the way through, but I don't think it's worthy of being called a storm. The first panel shows it at the Alaska/Yukon/BC border on the 24th.

Surprised no one else here has picked it up. Or is everybody following it on the US forum? GFS shows a fast moving system that deepens off the US east coast, and turns due north, hitting Atlantic Canada, including Labrador, and adjacent eastern Quebec.
