Toronto is a clean, safe, cosmopolitan city with a wonderful network of parks, recreational, and cultural facilities. Toronto is the home of four professional sports teams and the third largest English-speaking theater district in the world, behind New York and London. As one of the world's most ethnically diverse cities, it is home to more than 80 ethnic communities from Africa, Asia, and Europe. Toronto is also the business center of Canada. Here are just some of the many web sites that contain information about the city.
Exciting, vibrant, and cosmopolitan, Metropolitan Toronto, the 5th-largest metropolitan centre in North America (population approx. 2.5 million), reigns as Canada's largest city, the capital of the Province of Ontario, and Canada's cultural, financial and transportation hub. Metro Toronto is within a one hour drive for about five million Canadians, and is 90 minutes by air for about 60 per cent of the population of the United States.
Toronto is home to the CN Tower, the world's tallest free standing structure; two-time World Champion Blue Jays baseball team; SkyDome, the world's first retractable roof stadium; Ontario Place, which features the first permanent giant-screen IMAX theatre, a Canadian invention; and is in close proximity to the Niagara region featuring Niagara Falls.
