A lot of people compare this eastern Canadian city to New York, and it’s easy to see why. Both travelers and expats looking to make a permanent move take flights to Toronto. Young people from all over the world flock to set up home here, making it one of the world’s most multicultural and vibrant cities.
Almost half of Toronto’s residents aren’t native Canadians, which means that when you visit, you get an unrivaled variety in food, fashion, the arts, and culture.
Those who like to "go big" need not look further than the CN Tower, once the tallest man-made structure in the world and still the most daunting, thanks to its glass floor and elevators.
Yorkville’s tree-lined streets are perfect for window shopping and wandering, while art lovers will enjoy Queen Street West’s independent galleries. Then there are the arts and music festivals held all year round and the city's adventurous food scene.
At the same time, Toronto's position on the edge of Lake Ontario and a population made up of just as many artists and musicians as financiers and entrepreneurs give the city a unique feel. Toronto still feels like a welcoming, small town, with the same intimacy you’d find in rural Canada.
