Toronto, the provincial capital of Ontario, and the largest city in Canada, is located in Southern Ontario, on the northwestern shores of Lake Ontario. Boasting over 2.5 million residents, Toronto is the seventh most populous municipality in North America. Toronto is also the heart of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and is a part of a densely populated region in Southern Ontario, known as the Golden Horseshoe, which is called home by over 8.1 million residents and constitutes approximately 25% of Canada’s population.
Toronto’s population is cosmopolitan and international, something that reflects its role as an important destination for immigrants wishing to move to Canada, from abroad. As such, Toronto has become one of the world’s most diverse cities by percentage of non-native-born residents, as approximately 49% of the cities inhabitants were born in a country other than Canada. As a result of its cultural diversity, the city of Toronto has been recognized by UNESCO as the most ethnically diverse city in the world. And while some might think that blending of so many cultures in one place could cause difficulties, the opposite holds true as Toronto is consistently rated as one of the world’s most livable cities.
Being the capital of Ontario as well as Canada’s most populous city, the City of Toronto is also Canada’s economic capital and is also one of the top financial centres in the world. Some leading sectors of Toronto’s economy include: finance, business services, telecommunications, aerospace, transportation, media, arts, medical research, education and sports industries, to name but a few.
Toronto is also a smart city. This may not seem too hard to believe, as Toronto is a centre of higher education and research, home to many colleges and universities, including the University of Toronto, one of the world’s highest ranking universities and highest ranked, in Canada.
