We Are Ready


A city built on progress

Toronto is a welcoming place where international ideas intersect and original thought is celebrated. We are Canada’s largest education, business, cultural and entertainment capital and have been ranked the “Most Resilient City in the World” by Grosvenor in 2014 – proving we are a spirited and adaptable city.

Diversity is our strength

People from all around the world have come to call Toronto home, enriching this city with a fusion of traditions, language, cuisine, music and passion from more than 100 cultures speaking more than 140 languages.


Discover more to celebrate

Bright and lively festivals transform Toronto’s streets all year. Our calendar is full of exciting festivals of music, film, fashion, arts and culture, photography and food from around the world – more than 1000 annually!

Experience a rich history

Explore Afri-centric culture and heritage in Toronto – we’re home to 400,000+ African-Canadians, the largest group in Canada.


The majority of African-Americans who fled to Canada from the U.S. in the 19th century to live as free citizens crossed over into southwestern Ontario. Retrace steps of the underground railroad, visit the Underground Railroad Museum of Toronto or one of the many heritage sites that celebrate early Black settlements in Toronto and the surrounding regions.

Toronto means business

As the financial capital of Canada, Toronto shapes the economy and sets the pace for business across the country and beyond. Our financial services sector is the largest in Canada, and the fastest growing in North America.

Easy international access

Located in southern Ontario, Toronto is a 90-minute flight or less for over 100 million Americans, and is easily accessible with two recently modernized airports – Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport located downtown, and Toronto Pearson International Airport, located only 30 minutes from downtown.
