On the northern shore of Lake Ontario, near the US border, lies Canada’s largest city.
Toronto is the capital of the province of Ontario and is a major economic and cultural center for the country.
Founded as York by the British in the late 1700s, Toronto is now a proudly Canadian city and nearly six million people call the Greater Toronto Area home.
The Megacity attracts people from all over the world and neighborhoods such as China Town, Greektown and Little Italy are just some examples of Toronto’s diversity.
No less impressive, but from a different era altogether, is the elegant hilltop castle Casa Loma. It was dreamt up a century ago by the ambitious Sir Henry Pellatt, whose family motto was “Foremost If I Can”.
This motto perfectly reflects the spirit of the Torontonians, in what is nicknamed “the City that Works”.
One of the most striking contemporary twists to a historic building bis the design of the Royal Ontario Museum.
Browse the galleries with artifacts of Canada’s Aboriginal Peoples and depictions of the country’s past.
Then see artworks from across the globe and explore the nature exhibits.
Overlooking Lake Ontario is modern Canada Square, a cultural hub in the heart of the award-winning Harbourfront Centre.
Relax a while in the centre’s pleasant marina or visit a theater or brewhouse.
Sports fans can catch a game in Rogers Centre or visit the nearby Hockey Hall of Fame. First-timers are often surprised by the size of Toronto, which is North America’s fourth- largest city.
