Toronto

The capital of the Province of Ontario, Toronto is Canada’s largest city and the fifth largest in North?? America. A dominant force in the business and economy of the nation, it is also the cultural center of English-speaking Canada.
Toronto stands on the northern shore of Lake Ontario and the view of the city across the water is stunning and unmistakable – the CN Tower, thrusting skyward near the water’s edge, was until quite recently the world’s tallest tower. Framing it is a glimmering collection of skyscrapers, which give way to a dense city center with pleasant, leafy residential areas and parks, notably along the ravines that cut through the city.
The Toronto of today is a lively, cultured place with hot, humid summers and cold, damp winters. It is the most economically important city in Canada, the center of finance, media and services, and home to more corporate head offices than any other.
By night, its people indulge themselves at the city’s numerous restaurants, bars and clubs, or at the symphony, opera and theater. More than anything, however, Toronto is defined by its citizenry – friendly, efficient and one of the most multicultural in the world.
