Toronto is situated along Lake Ontario’s northwestern shore. It is the largest city in Canada with a population of 2.8 million people (5.5 million in the Greater Toronto Area) and has been heralded as one of the most multicultural cities in the world. It’s a dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, including the iconic CN Tower. Toronto is also home to Bay Street and the country’s economic index, the TSX. It is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, who settled on the Credit River. The name Toronto is derived from a Mohawk word ‘tkaronto’, which means ‘where there are trees standing in the water’.
