With Toronto’s bounty of theatre, attractions, museums, art galleries, theme parks, markets and even its very own islands, there’s plenty of inspiration for your personal Toronto itinerary – whether you like to pre-plan or discover as you go. Whatever you do, don’t forget to send postcards home.
Toronto is the largest city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario, located on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. The city has a population of 2.48 million and its metro region, the Greater Toronto Area, has a population of 5.9 million. The rounded shore of Lake Ontario forms what is described as the Golden Horseshoe, the approximate population of which is 8 million people. Residents of Toronto are called Torontonians.
As Canada's economic hub and a major global city, Toronto has highly developed finance, telecommunications, transportation, media, software production and medical research industries. The city is home to the CN Tower and a majority of the country's corporate head offices and transnational corporate offices. Toronto's population is cosmopolitan, which reflects its role as a major destination for immigrants to Canada. Because of its low crime rates, clean environment and generally high standard of living, Toronto is consistently rated one of the world's most livable cities by the Economist Intelligence Unit and the Mercer Quality of Living Survey.
