    “Toronto is currently enjoying newfound prominence – and desirability – amongst globe-trotting tastemakers,” - Vogue Magazine
 

Renowned historian Jane Jacobs called Toronto the "city that works". Situated 566 feet above sea level on the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto is one of the southernmost cities in Canada. Rising majestically from the shores of Lake Ontario, Canada's financial hub is both a physical and emotional feast for the eyes. "Work" may remain nearest and dearest in Torontonians' hearts, but culture and entertainment abound in this civilized city. Toronto is the capital of world-class offerings: theatre, sports, shopping, museums and restaurants. They run the gamut from classic to avant-garde and reflect Toronto's celebrated multi-cultural heritage. Here, work inspires play, encouraging innovation and daring daydreams to come true. Visitors and Torontonians all gravitate to the centre of the city where the metropolitan life comes together with all the best the city has to offer. The area's multi-cultural flavour borders the finest Greek, Italian, Thai, and Chinese restaurants.
