A lifestyle that is the envy of the world.
Toronto is one of the best cities in the world to live and work in according to many international comparisons and reports.
In addition to being an international centre for business, innovation, scientific research and education, it’s equally a centre for art, architecture and music.
Toronto is the fifth largest city in North America and the largest city in Canada, yet its networks of colourful neighbourhoods – easily accessed on foot, by public transit or by car – make this big city feel small and friendly.
It is the home to pro sports teams – the Toronto Maple Leafs, Blue Jays, Raptors, Argonauts and the Toronto Football Club. Toronto is the third-largest theatre centre in the English-speaking world, after New York and London.
Toronto's public transit system is the second largest in North America and has the highest per capita ridership rate on the continent. More than 2,700 subway vehicles, buses and streetcars make it easy for more than 1.5 million business riders to travel throughout the city daily.
There is an excellent public and private education system in which high levels of literacy, attendance and graduation are the norm. There is also a wide range of highly regarded private schools.
It is also a city of books, movies and events. It is home to the International Festival of Authors and the Toronto International Film Festival and hundreds of jazz, food and community festivals. According to National Geographic, Toronto is home to the world’s Number One outdoor food market. The Scotiabank Nuit Blanche attracts more than one million people to participate in a 12-hour, all-night, multi-venue exploration of contemporary art.
Toronto has something for everyone.
