Toronto - A Pretty Hip Place!


Visitors: 320

I know I am a little biased, but really, Toronto is a GREAT place. I have lived in the Greater Toronto Area for the last 18+ years and for the last almost 10 years I have lived right in the City of Toronto. And I love it! I wanted to put together a little profile of Toronto, this quirky, multicultural microcosm of a city.

Let me start by I what I find most unique about Toronto: the tremendous mix of cultures, languages and communities that we have here. UNESCO has designated Toronto as one of the most multicultural cities in the world, as a matter of fact Toronto is home to more than 100 cultures and its new slogan is the world within a city™ .

What’s unique about Toronto is that all these ethnic groups live together in a relative state of harmony. Nothing is perfect, of course, but Toronto is a more inclusive and tolerant place than literally any place I have ever visited, including other world cities.

With a population of 4.2 million, Toronto is Canada's largest city and comes in 5th in size after in North America, after Mexico City, Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. Situated 566 feet above sea level on the northern shore of Lake Ontario (part of the Great Lakes system), Toronto is one of the southernmost cities in Canada. In fact, it has nearly the same latitude as northern California.

All in all, Toronto is a fabulous place and there is no way you should have to get bored here. Check out these links for further information. toronto. on. ca
