Best Time to Visit Toronto?

The best time of the year to visit Toronto is from late April through May, and from mid-September through mid-October. During these times, you’ll have a good chance for pleasant weather, and tourist crowds will be few while the sidewalks will come to life with patio eateries, cultural events, and pedestrian markets.

City Character

Toronto’s motto is “Diversity Our Strength”
Toronto is known as one of the world’s most multi-cultural cities, Toronto prides itself on its wide range of cultures, languages, food and arts. Almost half of its population are immigrants.

Why is Toronto an important city?

York was renamed and incorporated in 1834 as the city of Toronto. It was designated as the capital of the province of Ontario in 1867 during Canadian Confederation. The diverse population of Toronto reflects its current and historical role as an important destination for immigrants to Canada.
