Toronto is Canada’s largest city and a world leader in business, finance, technology, entertainment and culture. Its large population of immigrants from all over the globe has also made Toronto one of the most multicultural cities in the world.
As the largest city and number one visitor destination in the country, Toronto is known as Canada’s Downtown.
“Toronto” is Huron First Nations for “meeting place,” a word which aptly describes one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world. Toronto boasts over 100 different cultures, which are represented in its population of over 2.3 million. This diversity can be seen at the city’s many festivals, friendly neighbourhoods, and obviously, its 9,000 restaurants.
The shopping experience includes everything from upscale boutiques to an underground city featuring 1,200 stores and services. Toronto also boasts more than 32,500 hotel rooms.
The city’s love for the arts has made it an important live theatre centre, and its museums are some of the most unique in North America.
This bold new city of glass towers and Victorian neighbourhoods even boasts parkland islands in its harbour. And it’s also within a few hours drive of the great Canadian outdoors and the breathtaking Niagara Falls.
Annual business operating costs are significantly lower in Toronto than in many leading international centres. The governments of Canada, Ontario and Toronto provide a range of incentives to allow businesses to grow and prosper in a politically stable environment. Each order of government has demonstrated a commitment to competitive tax rates, resulting in a combined corporate income tax rate of 26.5%, approximately 13 percentage points lower than the U.S. average.
Additionally, business property taxes are becoming increasingly competitive. With the elimination of over 1,500 tariffs on manufacturing inputs, machinery and equipment, Canada was the first country in the G20 to become a tariff-free zone for manufacturers and offers the lowest overall tax rate in the G7. The City of Toronto’s unparalleled financial stability and dynamic investment strategies mitigate the risk of inflation instability, exchange rate fluctuations, and limitations to short or long-term capital access, force majeure, and higher operating costs.
