A little bit about the city: Toronto
As the largest city in Canada, and growing, Toronto prides itself on diversity, with a wide range of cultures, foods and art available. Named by Forbes as one of the ‘World’s Most Economically Powerful Cities’, Toronto is certainly somewhere worth settling in. Alongside the economic benefits, Toronto’s transport system is strong thanks to their public buses and streetcars, which use hybrid-electrics, therefore creating minimal environmental damage.

Generally regarded as a very safe city, and with several prestigious schools situated there, Toronto is an especially great option for people with families considering relocating.
