Toronto, the capital city of Ontario, boasts the largest population base in Canada. It is home to over 2.5 million residents and is touted as an exciting multicultural Mecca. Toronto is geographically situated on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario in the region called Southern Ontario. It is the key city of the Greater Toronto Area which is commonly referred to as the GTA. This southern Ontario region is comprised of over 8 million residents. When driving in the GTA area one city spills into the next for mile upon mile. Some of these cities are: Pickering, Oshawa, Markham, Scarborough, Mississauga, Oakville and Brampton.

Today, Toronto is the key landing centre for immigration to Canada. Roughly half the city's population started life outside of Toronto or in another country. This huge immigrant population has given Toronto a truly cosmopolitan flavour. One can experience foods and cultural events from around the world right in downtown Toronto as well as in its many ethnic neighbourhoods. Yonge Street is the longest street in the world. It is well over 40 miles long and runs north to south, right through the heart of Toronto. Driving from one end to the other is a good way to witness the multicultural flavour of the city.

Prior to the 16th century, the land now known as Toronto was inhabited by the Iroquois Indians and then slowly, over the next century, the Huron Indians became the main population base. In the late 18th century, this area was named York, by Governor John Simcoe, in tribute to the British Duke of York, Prince Frederick. In 1834, the area was established as the City of Toronto. It became the capital city of Ontario in 1867, when the Province of Ontario was incorporated.

Toronto is Canada's main economic and cultural centre. It is the home base for many of Canada's top corporate and financial banks and companies. It is also home to the Toronto Stock Exchange which is one of the largest in the world. It boasts the tallest free standing building in the world, the CN Tower. It is home to the Toronto Maple Leaf hockey team, the Toronto Raptors basketball team and the infamous Toronto Argonauts football team. Torontonians are very loyal to their sports teams whether they win or lose. Each team is considered as a successful financial franchise in North America. Another international attraction is the Toronto Film Festival with its ever increasing stature. During this international event it is commonplace to see major Hollywood and European movie stars walking about and dining throughout the city.

There are so many festivals, things to do and places to visit in Toronto that no matter what the season, tourists and locals alike always have a large menu of activities to chose from. It takes many visits to this vibrant city just to visit the main attractions! Toronto is a locale that you will likely want to return to again and again.
