Toronto / Canada
Toronto is a huge city with several district articles containing sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife and accommodation listings – consider printing them all.Toronto’s skyline at dusk.Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. It is located in Southern Ontario on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. With over 2.5 million residents, it is the fifth most populous municipality in North America. Toronto is at the heart of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) which contains nearly 6 million people, and is part of a larger combined region in Southern Ontario known as the Golden Horseshoe, totalling over 8.1 million residents making up approximately 25% of Canada’s population. The city is the cultural and economic focus of English Canada. The city began as an Anglo backwater where buying alcohol and socializing on Sundays was strictly prohibited. Owing largely to the country’s liberal immigration policies of the 1960’s, coupled with the region’s strong economy, Toronto has, in recent decades, been transformed into one of the most culturally and ethnically diverse cities in the world. More than 80 ethnic communities are represented, half of whom were born outside Canada.
When Metropolitan Toronto amalgamated its six internal cities into one in 1998, it created a new “mega-city” known simply as Toronto. Covering more than 600 square kilometres, Toronto stretches some 32 kilometres along the shores of Lake Ontario, and includes a dense, urban core surrounded by a ring of suburbs. The city is laid out on a very straightforward grid pattern and streets rarely deviate from the grid, except if there’s a significant landmark in the way. As such, it is extremely easy to navigate. Many of the city’s districts and neighbourhoods are named after the intersections in the street grid upon which they are centred (e.g., Church and Wellesley, Yonge and Eglinton, Jane and Finch). From there, the city’s suburban districts (which were once independent cities, themselves) – Etobicoke, North York and Scarborough – extend outward to the city’s outer boundaries. While there are pockets of density in these districts, they tend to resemble your typical, older North American suburb.
The main bus terminal in Toronto, the Toronto Coach Terminal (also known as Bay Street Terminal or the Metro Toronto Coach Terminal), is used for intercity coach travel and is served by Greyhound, Coach Canada, New York Trailways, and Ontario Northland.The bus terminal’s main entrance is on Bay Street immediately north of Dundas and the terminal’s departures building takes up the northern half of the block bounded by Bay Street, Dundas Street, Edward Street, and Elizabeth Street; the arrivals building is located immediately across Elizabeth Street from the departures building. The departures building is connected by the underground PATH walkway system to Dundas subway station on the Yonge line via the Atrium on Bay shopping centre. The terminal is also several blocks east of St Patrick subway station on the University-Spadina line.
