Toronto Introduction Toronto Introduction Toronto Introduction

As the world’s most ethnically diverse city, Toronto is Canada’s much loved vibrant and very much in the know/now city. Full of diverse communities, art and culture, Toronto offers something for everyone. Regardless of the time of year, Toronto hosts entertainment 365 days a year such as the Toronto International Film Festival and Wintercity. The harbourfront, an attraction in itself also provides the perfect setting to take in the CN Tower (which features glass floor observation decks, a revolving restaurant, and a Simulator Theatre), as well as nearby Rogers Center (formerly known as the Skydome and home to Toronto’s baseball team the Blue Jays and football team Toronto Argonauts) and Air Canada Centre (home to ice hockey’s Toronto Maple Leafs and basketball’s Toronto Raptors).

Travellers in Toronto’s historic Old Town can visit the St. Lawrence Market, considered one of the world’s top food markets; it is a great place to pick up fresh produce, or just wander among the stalls.
Equally impressive is Toronto’s world class shopping. The city’s number one tourist attraction is the Eaton Centre, one of the first down town shopping centres constructed in North America.

Downtown, travellers will enjoy world class museums and galleries including Canada’s largest museum, which is one of the top 10 museums in the world - the Royal Ontario Museum. The recently renovated AGO - Art Gallery of Ontario will also be sure to delight. Toronto is undeniably a city always on the go. Toronto’s great strength is that, although it’s the largest city in Canada, it never feels impersonal or faceless. It’s a city of diverse cultures, small shops and markets, of galleries and local eateries; in short, a welcoming cosmopolitan city for all visitors.
