Why study in Toronto?

Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, which welcomes individuals from all cultural backgrounds. Neighbourhoods such as Chinatown, Little Italy, Little India, Koreatown, Little Jamaica, Little Portugal are all examples of Toronto’s diverse atmosphere.  The city is Canada’s largest and comprised of what used to be five separate cities, making it a ‘Megacity’. Toronto is an amazing travel destination and a ‘meeting place’ for cultures, arts, and business, and visitors will find it has Canada’s liveliest night-life. Visit the popular Harbour Front area for entertainment venues, lakeside walks and much more. Travel to the top of the CN Tower for a spectacular view of the city, or visit the underground PATH, a subterranean system of 1, 200 services and shops stretching over 27km. Toronto also has lots of great restaurants, festivals, museums and art galleries, as well as a zoo and activities for kids. Tour the Royal Ontario Museum’s impressive collection of Chinese art, visit Casa Loma, an unusual medieval-style castle in the middle of the city, and stop by the Ontario Science Centre to discover things you never knew about the world.

The Safest Large City in North America

Toronto is an exceptionally clean and safe city to visit and reside in. It has a lower crime rate than both Vancouver and Montreal in Canada, as well as all cities in the United States.
