About Toronto

Exciting, vibrant and cosmopolitan, Toronto is Canada’s Downtown, the largest city and number one visitor destination.

“Toronto” is Huron Indian for “meeting place,” a word which describes one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world, with over 100 different cultures represented in its population of over 2.6 million. This diversity can be seen at the city’s many festivals, friendly neighbourhoods, and of course, its 9,000 restaurants.

The shopping experience includes everything from upscale boutiques to an underground city featuring 1,200 stores and services.

The city’s love for the arts has made it an important live theatre centre, and its museums are some of the most unique in North America.

This bold new city of glass towers and Victorian neighbourhoods even boasts parkland islands in its harbour. The city is also within a few hours drive of the great Canadian outdoors and the breathtaking Niagara Falls.
