Canada’s largest city, perched on the tip of Lake Ontario, is a medley of cultures, histories and lifestyles. Toronto’s dynamic blend of distinct neighbourhoods, vibrant downtown scene and non-stop events makes this one of Canada’s most compelling urban destinations.
Traditionally known as ‘Hogtown’ and ‘Big Smoke’, the city recently acquired the nickname ‘The Six’, bestowed by Toronto rapper, Drake. Its meaning is up for debate, though it’s widely accepted that it refers to the 1998 unification of the city’s six boroughs – Toronto, North York, Scarborough, York, East York and Etobicoke. Whatever the origin, the moniker has stuck, with Toronto’s residents proud of the city’s ever-changing identity.
The capital city of Ontario, Toronto is a thriving platform for contemporary art, music and performance of all kinds, with a multicultural food scene rivalling the best in the world. Visitors can hear up to 128 languages and dialects in a metropolis adorned with beaches, galleries, sidewalk cafes and endless shops, featuring everything from vintage boutiques to designer outlets.
