Vibrant, buzzing, and completely welcoming, Toronto is an amazing city to be in.

The number of festivals happening weekly is testament to the city’s celebratory embrace of life. Rich in culture, art, and amazing food, Toronto is also one of the safest cities in North America. This multicultural hub hosts a number of big events – one of which is the 2015 Pan American Games – and draws in international talent and a whole lot more. There’s a bit of everything here – from fashion lovers to culinary connoisseurs.

Things to know before you go

  • Public transportation in Toronto is reliable – buses, streetcars and the subway cover a fair amount of the city – but can get a little crowded, so give yourself more time to get to and from places. There are day, week and month passes that allows unlimited travel across all types of transportation.
  • Aim to tip 15-20% to taxi and restaurant bills before adding on tax. Some places will automatically charge for the tip in larger groups.
  • The national currency in Canada is the Canadian dollar (international code: CAD).
