As the fifth most populous city in North America, Toronto is home to over 5 million people. But don’t let the crowds deter you from a visit to Canada’s largest metropolis. In fact, Toronto is a top spot for both business and pleasure!
Not sure what all the fuss is about? Here’s why Toronto is a worthy destination:
- In addition to being the economic capital of Canada, Toronto is one of the premier financial centres in the world. There’s the Toronto Stock Exchange and leading sectors in business, telecommunications, transportation, media, film, publishing and software production. Not to mention the fact that Forbes magazine considers Toronto to be one of the most economically powerful city in the world.
- It’s got plenty of historic landmarks. Like Black Creek Pioneer Village (a restored 1860s Victorian-era pioneer village), Casa Loma (who wouldn’t want to visit a castle that has secret passageways?!), and the Distillery Historic District (brick-lined streets and restored Victorian buildings).
- Toronto is the only Canadian city to represent seven major league sports, including NHL, NBA, MLB, and MLS. Plus there’s Canadian Football League and the Canadian Women’s Hockey League.
- There’s plenty of arts and culture for even the most picky patron. Over fifty dance and ballet companies, dozens of of theaters, six operas and two symphony orchestras make Toronto a hotbed of artistic talent. And of course there’s plenty of boutiques, restaurants, art galleries, and museums to check out, as well.
