Toronto is Canada’s most populated city and the fourth most populated city in North America following Mexico City, Los Angeles and New York City. Toronto’s culture is both vastly multicultural and multifaceted, with unique presences in business, sports, media and the arts.
In addition to its role as the commercial capital of Canada, Toronto is also the provincial capital for the province of Ontario, which further encompasses Canada’s national capital city of Ottawa. Prior to the establishment of “Toronto” in 1834, Europeans began permanent settlement in Toronto in the 1790s. Toronto later became the capital of Ontario during Canadian Confederation in 1867, while Aboriginal peoples, including the Iroquois, Wyandot and the Mississauga have lived in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) for thousands of years.
The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) spreads across a sloped plateau in Southern Ontario, situated along Lake Ontario’s northwestern shores. Lake Ontario is one of the five Great Lakes of North America that collectively store 21% of the Earth’s fresh water; 4 of them in Canada: Lake Erie, Lake Superior, Lake Huron and Lake Ontario, with only Lake Michigan set fully in the United States. Toronto and Canada as a whole are closely connected and dedicated to our United States partners south of the border.
As Canada’s commercial capital, Toronto hosts and headquarters multiple major industries and companies that affect Canadian, American and global economies including the stock exchange, five major banks, technology, arts, design, fashion, education, life sciences, food and tourism.
The most prominent American cities closest to Toronto are Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY; Ontario has its own city of Niagara Falls on the Canadian “Horseshoe” side of the waterfalls. In addition to Niagara Falls being one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Canada’s geography consists of mountains, plains and lowlands that experience four seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter. Toronto specifically is made up of wide ravines, forest and rivers, and 140 distinct neighbourhoods. Some fun things to do and see in Toronto are:
Approximately 50% of Toronto’s residents identify as visible minorities, with more than 200 ethnic origins and over 160 languages spoken. All of these special elements make Toronto a culturally rich, vibrant and meaningful location for holidays, lifelong stay, and everything in between!
You all did a great job working with me on the project. Now that the sale is being opened up to the public we are shifting dollars into TV and digital. Glad to know I have a reliable, fast, competent and creative private mail team to call on when work arises for Tiger in Toronto.
When I was searching for a company to handle my mailers, Troi was the first company that came up. I contacted them and I’m glad that I did! I have worked with the Troi Mailing & Timeline Printing team (Peter and Ken) for a couple of years now.
You and your team made it very easy for us and the reason that we kept coming back is because of the service, speed of delivery and the fact that you answer the phone!! Believe me it makes the biggest difference to be able to call and get a quick response.
