Welcome to Toronto
Whether you are looking for the best place to invest your real estate dollars or looking for one of the best cities in the world in which to live, you can’t get much better than Toronto. Toronto is routinely listed as one of the world’s most popular cities to call home in terms of lifestyle, safety and economic stability. Upon visiting, you quickly realize why. Toronto is a very welcoming, friendly city that embraces cultural diversity. It is a city of neighbourhoods, each with its own unique character and sense of community. Canada’s largest metropolis also has everything you could want in a city, including world-class arts, entertainment, shopping, restaurants, transit, health services and, of course, housing and jobs. For several years in a row now, Toronto has been named one of the top five most livable cities in the world as ranked by The Economist.
While it has everything you could want in a world-class city, It provides this at a cost that is well below other major cities. Toronto has also led the G7 economies with the strongest real GDP growth for the past couple of years now.
As a result of Toronto’s social and economic strength, more and more of the world’s largest businesses – including Google, Amazon and Shopify – have set up shop and are expanding in Toronto. As a result, Toronto is quickly becoming a world leader in terms of technology. There are roughly 241,000 tech industry jobs in the GTA, making this the fourth-largest tech hub in North America — and the fastest growing. The technology industry in the Greater Toronto Area has grown by more than 50 per cent in the past five years.
Job growth, especially in the tech sector, coupled with the city’s liveability, are attracting more and more immigrants. Today, approximately one in five Canadians is foreign-born. The Government of Canada is slated to accept more than 400,000 immigrants per year for the next few years.
One of the biggest decision when coming to Toronto to live is choosing the neighbourhood that best suits your lifestyle and needs. Toronto is a patchwork of neighbours, each with its own vibe and distinct identity.
