TORONTO IT ALL HAPPENS IN CANADA’S DOWNTOWN

Ranked as a top place to visit by The New York Times, Lonely Planet, Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure Magazine, Toronto is a trendsetting international city of influence and an exciting cosmopolitan destination. Vogue Magazine called it the country’s “cultural capital” and ranked the Queen West neighbourhood as the second-hippest district in the world. Toronto is truly Canada’s Downtown.

Made up of eclectic and lively neighbourhoods that celebrate a variety of cultures and lifestyles, Toronto is vibrant. Indulge yourself like never before in one of the world’s best shopping destinations. Find inspiration in everything from world premier theatre to experimental performance art and over 125 galleries and museums. Toronto was named fourth best city in the world to experience culture by Foreign Policy magazine.

Toronto features over 9,000 restaurants offering the finest ingredients coupled with recipes from around the globe and that unique, delicious dash of Toronto flavour. Thanks to the city’s broad ethnic mix, from traditional fare to fusion cuisine, sushi, curry and more, whatever you crave, Toronto can satisfy any taste!

Discover an astonishing collection of natural and cultural history featuring more than 6 million objects at Canada’s largest museum, the Royal Ontario Museum. Marvel at 66,000 works of art, spanning 100 AD to the present day at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Or head to the Distillery Historic District, the site of a former whisky distillery, which is now one of Toronto’s newest centres for arts, dining, shopping and entertainment.

Toronto is also booming with spectacular new venues, including Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, the Aga Khan Museum, a new plaza at the CN Tower, a makeover of Toronto’s Union Station, the stunning redevelopment of Toronto’s waterfront, and the creation of new public spaces and neighbourhoods made for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games.
