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.
