 Toronto Basic


Toronto is a cosmopolitan city with a wonderful network of parks, recreational, and cultural facilities. It is the largest city in Canada and is the home of seven professional sports teams and the third largest English-speaking theatre district in the world, behind New York and London. It is one of the world's most multicultural cities as it is home to more than 80 ethnic communities from all over the world. Half of the population of Toronto was not born in Canada. A dominant force in the business and economy of the nation, it is also the cultural centre of English-speaking Canada. The economy of Toronto is one of the largest in the world, worth $315 billion US. Toronto has also been labeled a "world city".

Toronto's seasons are easily distinguishable from one another, with extreme weather conditions often experienced in both the summer and the winter. Although Toronto's winter climate and weather can be less severe than other parts of the country, it is wise to go well prepared if you are planning to visit Toronto during the chilly winter months.

However, it's not all snow and icicles. Toronto enjoys long, hot summer days and sunny weather thanks to its southerly location, while springtime is mostly warm and pleasant, making it the most welcomed season after the winter's bitter snowstorms that sometimes strike as late as March.


With over 300 languages spoken throughout America and Canada, English and French are the main languages in Toronto, and the majority of highway signposts and tourist leaflets display both. Canadian English is widely spoken in Toronto and is based upon British English, with many interesting expressions. In the states of Quebec and Manitoba, Canadian French is the main language. Toronto contains numerous different nationalities and a number of regions in Canada are known for their local dialects and colorful colloquialisms, particularly around the Newfoundland area of Canada.
