In Southern Ontario at the heart of the Golden Horseshoe lies the largest Canadian city: Toronto.
Located along the northern shores of Lake Ontario, this provincial capital was established in the late 18th century when the British Crown purchased the land from the Mississaugas of the New Credit. Known at the time as York, it was designated as the capital of the fledgling country by John Graves Simcoe. In 1834 it became a city and was renamed Toronto.
Since then, it has continued to increase in size and population largely through immigration and amalgamation of surrounding communities.
Now home to an incredibly cosmopolitan population of 2.6 million residents, it’s the fifth largest city in North America by population. An important destination for immigrants from around the world, it is also one of the most diverse cities in the world with about 49% of its residents not born within the country.
Consistently rated one of the best cities to live in, Toronto is home to many attractions including the Ontario Science Centre, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the TIFF Bell Lightbox, just to name a few.
No longer the political capital of the country, Toronto remains its economic capital and is home to the Toronto Stock Exchange, the five largest national banks, and a host of businesses and companies across all industries including aerospace, transportation, publishing, software production, finance, education, tourism, and engineering.
A thriving and competitive city, residents of Toronto are constantly on a search for new ways to feel their very best.
