Toronto is the largest city in Canada with a population of around 2.5 million (over 5 million in the greater Toronto area), and one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world. It is also the capital of the province of Ontario. It is located in the southeastern part of Ontario, on the northwest corner of Lake Ontario, across the lake from Buffalo, New York.
The city of Toronto is a major world city, and is one of the larger cities in North America, as well as one of the main economic centers of the east coast of North America. There is plenty to do in the city, and it is also host to several professional sports teams, including the Blue Jays, the Mapleleafs, and the Raptors. The most famous landmarks in the city is the CN Tower, which is the tallest free standing structure in the world, at 1815 feet, or 533 meters.
Getting in and around is fairly easy, as Toronto Pearson International Airport is located in Mississauga which is about 45 minutes from downtown. There is also a pretty good public transportation system in Toronto which includes subways, streetcars, and buses.
Although many people think of cold and snow when they think of Canada, Toronto's weather isn't that bad in comparision, in fact it is one of the mildest climates east of the Canadian Rockies. While Buffalo, which is just east across Lake Ontario in New York, gets buried in snow, the lake protects Toronto. It still gets cold, but not as bad as many places in Canada. And summers are warm to hot, and temperatures can easily climb into the 90s.
