On the whole Toronto is remarkably safe and the streets are vibrant with pedestrians and bicyclists even at night in most neighborhoods. If you use common sense you should have no trouble at all: don't walk around alone late at night and be aware of your surroundings.For any emergency, dial 911 (you can dial it at the pay phone without putting in any coins).

City also has a large homeless population, many of whom will ask you for money. If you do not want to offer them money, simply look the panhandler in the eye and say "No thank you" or simply ignore them. There have been several recent occurrences of over aggressive pan-handlers, with one resulting in a fatality. As a result, if a pan-handler becomes aggressive, move away quickly and alert a police officer. Toronto has a larger homeless population than many other similar-sized cities because there is a law allowing homeless people to remain on the sidewalk, as long as they are not aggressive.

Winter time many pedestrians have abandoned the snow-covered sidewalks which are impassable in some spots, walking on roads that have been squeezed by the endless flakes. And that's putting them in danger as drivers try to navigate the narrows.

If you happen to be here and in many parts of Canada at winter time, avoid the slippery iced snow on your path. Wear winter shoes/boots. But please do not walk on the street, cars slip too.
