If you’ve just purchased one of the homes for sale in Toronto or are just contemplating a move, you should know that this vibrant city is a place that you’ll fall head over heels for. Sometimes referred to as the “New York City of the North,” it offers something for everyone.
There are many reasons you’ll love living in Ontario’s largest city, these are just a few.
It’s Welcoming to All
Toronto has one of the world’s most diverse cultures, with people of many different backgrounds, ethnicities, and faiths. No matter how long you’ve lived here, you can be considered a Torontonian. You won’t be judged on what country you were born in, what accent you have, or the color of your skin. The city is welcoming to all, with people of all types blending and living happily. Most tend to be good-natured here, and likely, within a matter of days after moving, you’ll know someone who will be happy to help whenever the need arises.
Lots of Jobs and a Thriving Startup Scene
Toronto contributes more to Canada’s economy than any other city as an important economic hub on a global scale. There are many job opportunities in everything from technology and finance to media. It’s also a fantastic destination for entrepreneurs as one of the top places for startups. It’s a major city for global business and finance, not to mention a great place for entrepreneurs as one of the top places for startups. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the city has continued to climb in international rankings of entrepreneurial ecosystems. It dominated LinkedIn’s Top Startups in Canada for 2020, widely regarded as one of the best places in the world to start a business.
It’s Easy to Get Around
Toronto is a huge city, but it has an extensive public transport system that extends well into the suburbs, making it easy to get around. The subway is particularly efficient as it avoids that rush over traffic as the fastest way to get from point A to point B.
The Food Scene
One of North America’s top food cities, Toronto is home to many world-class restaurants with one of the most diverse array of dining options you’ll find anywhere as it’s home to so many different cultures. One can expect to find authentic fare from nearly every ethnic and cultural group across the globe, whether you want something quick from a food truck or the total gourmet dining experience. There’s the signature jerk chicken at Chubby’s Jamaican Kitchen, refined yet casual Indian cuisine at Pukka, classic German dishes served with pilsners at Otto’s Bierhalle, the list goes on and on.
Toronto is a place where many residents prioritize fitness and having fun. You can kayak, paddleboard, raft, rock climb, bike, and golf during the warmer months or in the winter, ice skate, snowshoe, get out on a fat-tire bike to cycle, or toboggan. You don’t have to go far to ski or board either. Many places to hit the slopes are within an hour or two of the city. Glen Eden is only 45 minutes from Toronto and offers 12 runs for skiers and boarders of all levels along with a snow tubing area. Horseshoe Valley can be reached in under an hour with 28 ski and snowboard runs, groomed trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, and a terrain park.
