Our 165th Destination – Toronto, Canada

Canada’s largest city and one of its southernmost, Toronto is located on the northwest shore of Lake Ontario. With a population of 2.5 million in the city itself, and 5.5 million in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), it is one of the safest cities in North America and ranks high in livability studies.

As Canada’s largest employment center, Toronto is the nation’s banking and investment center, with a range of other industries to round out the economy. The technological heart of Canada, Toronto’s information- and communication-technology industry contributes over $20 billion to the economy annually.
