Are you planning to move to Toronto? According to the Economist’s 2015 list of ‘Most Livable Cities’, Toronto ranked at the top! Toronto offers a meld of modernism, multiculturalism, friendly boroughs to spend your time in and great places to live. Here is a list of what makes Toronto as a whole, an appealing place to live.
Toronto mirrors a host of qualities that are similar to New York City. Its visual infrastructure including the TTC subway stations, the city’s shimmering skyscrapers and lively places like Dundas Square, pay homage to the big apple, while rightfully standing on its own.
The city also has a plethora of natural spaces like parks, trails and of course the great lakes. Many people like to spend their time outdoors in this city at local parks and spots like High Park, Ward’s Island, the eastern beaches, the Glen Stewart Ravine and the Scarborough Bluffs.
Expansive Transit System
Toronto is really well connected by the TTC, which offers an expansive subway line, streetcars and buses to get around. The city is pretty accessible which allows you to live in the inner city without having a car. If you choose to use transit and walking as your main mode of transportation, we suggest you live close by to a subway line! Toronto is quite wide and it can take time getting around – good thing the city is equipped with effective transit so you can get around easily!
Education and Job Opportunities
Toronto is really seen for its diversity as it brings people from all over the world for work and study. The city has some of the best universities in the country including the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, The Ontario College of Art and Design and Wilfred Laurier University to name a few, on top of countless specialized colleges that offer schooling for an array of vocations.
In terms of work, Toronto is considered to be an economic powerhouse in Canada. Industry sectors that bring people from all over the world include design, fashion, film, education, financial services, food and beverage, environmental and life sciences, music, technology and tourism!
