Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, home to 2.5 million people, half of whom were born outside of Canada.
A city proud of its diversity, Toronto is home to distinct neighbourhoods like Chinatown, Greektown, Koreatown, Little India, Little Italy, Little Jamaica, Little Portugal and Roncesvalles, the centre of the Polish community.
Toronto's economy is just as diverse as its population. As Canada's largest city is also the commercial capital, sectors include business, finance, design, education, fashion, food and beverage, information and communications technology, tourism and film and television.
Often called "Hollywood North," Toronto is the third largest film and television production centre on the continent after Los Angeles and New York City, and stars convene at the Toronto International Film Festival each September.
Other annual festivals include the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival, and Pride Week, one of the largest gay pride festivals in the world. But these are just some of the city's highlights. The CN Tower, Royal Ontario Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, National Ballet of Canada and Canada's Walk of Fame are all sights to see. Plus, with seven professional sports teams, there's always something to cheer for in Toronto.
