Around 2.6 million people live in this multicultural and rapidly growing city on the north-western bank of Lake Ontario. With numerous parks, festivals, cultural events and a varied arts scene, Toronto is a lively and liveable city. Sights and attractions, which simply cannot be missed include the CN tower, the Rogers Centre, The Royal Ontario Museum, China Town, and of course, the Toronto Islands. In 2015, 40 million people visited the Canadian city. The Niagara falls are also just a stone’s throw away from Toronto.
