Architecture of Toronto

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and the provincial capital of Ontario. It is often described as the world’s most multicultural city, with more than half its population having immigrated from other countries. Its population is 2,481,494 (2003 Statistics Canada estimate); that of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is 5,600,000 (2003). Approximately one-third of the Canadian population lives within a five-hour drive of Toronto, and about one-sixth of all Canadian jobs lie within the city limits. The GTA extends beyond the city boundaries and includes the regional municipalities of Halton, Peel, York and Durham.
