Join us in Toronto in July 2014!

Toronto is the largest city in Canada and home to more than two million people. Known as one of the most populous cities in North America, the city continues to thrive as Canada’s financial and business capital as well as the nation’s host to an ever exploding arts scene. Dating back to the 18th century, the diverse and modern cosmopolitan city stands as the county’s’ cultural heartland, enriched with a mixture of entertainment, events and major historical and archaeological artifacts embedded throughout the city, including Fort York which houses Canada’s largest collection of original War of 1812 buildings.

Shaped by the diverse cultures and heralded as one of the most multicultural cities worldwide, Toronto’s core is known as one of the most vibrant regions in North America. Toronto lays on the edge of Lake Ontario, providing beautiful scenery and spectacular views from the skyline towers rooted throughout the core of the city. Take a ride up one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and tallest freestanding structure for over three decades, The CN Tower (built in 1973), and enjoy a meal at one of Toronto’s finest restaurants 360 while getting a revolving view of the city. If heights aren’t your thing, Toronto’s booming exquisite dining scene will have something for you, offering unlimited cafes, restaurants, and diners.
