About Toronto

The Ontario Province of Canada is the most populous province within the borders of the country. In terms of land area, Ontario is the 2nd largest. The province is known to the world because geographically, it houses Ottawa, Canada’s capital city. The provincial capital of Ontario is Toronto, which is the country’s largest city to date. The city of Toronto is part of the Greater Toronto Area, and has an estimated population of 2.6 million citizens. The city is also part of the Golden Horseshoe region, of which it is the anchor city. The Golden Horseshoe region is the densest area in the province, and encompasses two regions, namely the Niagara Peninsula and the Greater Toronto Area. The history of Toronto goes back to the early settlements of Native Americans, such as the so-called Iroquois and Wyandot people. The Europeans started living in the place after it was deserted by the natives. They established a trading post, until the region’s economy and culture grew. Through the years, the city of Toronto had been influenced by alien forces, like the French. In fact, the city became one of the world’s ethnically and culturally diverse cities in the 19th century. Statistics show that Toronto is home to a total of 80 ethnic communities as of this date. The city of Toronto is huge, which is why it is divided into districts. Within the urban jungle are tourist attractions that make tourism a major economic driver.
