About Toronto

The City of Toronto is the Capital of Ontario and Canada’s largest city with a population of over 2.6 million. If you include the Greater Toronto area or GTA, it has a population of almost 5.6 million people. Toronto is the financial center of Canada, hosting the Toronto Stock Exchange and the head offices of the 5 major Banks. It is a world class city with one of the most diverse populations in the world, almost 50% of which are foreign born. There are many clearly defined neighbourhoods in Toronto, with their own architecture and ethnic background, which gives them their own special nature. Toronto is located in the southern part of the Province of Ontario on the north side of Lake Ontario.

With such a large and diverse population, Toronto boasts some of the best cultural experiences available in Canada. From exotic food and dining to fashion and the world renowned Toronto Film Festival. It is consistently rated as one the world’s most “livable cities”. If you’re thinking of moving to a beautiful, culturally diverse and modern Metropolitan city, Toronto has got it all. The city has some of the best education facilities in Canada and makes it an ideal city to relocate to and raise a family.


Since the city of Toronto and the surrounding GTA is center to the largest population in Canada, it is not tied to any one specific resource or industry. It is the center of Canada’s financial district but also contains the headquarters of resource and service industries. This gives stability to its economy as it is not as subject the swings of demand from resource based economies of other cities.

Families looking to relocate to Toronto should feel confident in the fact that there are lots of opportunities for employment, education and recreation. With lots of parks, a large downtown core and waterfront opportunities on Lake Ontario and the inland lakes and cottages just a short drive away, it’s hard to find a better city to move. On the weekends and holidays it is not uncommon for more than half the city to vacate to a recreation destination outside the city. With the Province of Ontario offering some of the best recreation opportunities available all year round.
