Toronto is Canada's largest city and the fourth largest city in North America behind Mexico City, New York City, and Los Angeles. In fact 1/3 of all Canadians live within 60 kilometers (about 36 miles) of Toronto. Known as the "economic engine of Canada," Toronto is a major international center and destination and the cultural and business center of Canada. Toronto is also one of the world's most culturally diverse cities. One in two people who live in Toronto were born in a nation other than Canada.

Toronto's beautiful skyline, overlooking Lake Ontario, features the 1,815 foot tall CN Tower, one of the world's tallest free-standing structures. Next door to the CN Tower is Rogers Plaza (formerly the Skydome), the world's first sporting arena to feature a fully retractable roof.
