A Diverse City of Opportunity

In Toronto, opportunity abounds. As big as the Greater Toronto Area may be (it's home to more than 5.5 million people), the city itself consists of many distinct, highly livable neighbourhoodseach with its own character, family-friendly amenities, and entertainment options. These communities are home to more than 100 cultures from around the world. Our city is one of the most multicultural on the planet, with about 50% of our population born outside of Canada. For our students, this diversity can help make a new city feel very much like home.

Toronto also offers unparalleled research opportunities to our students and faculty members. Thanks to our highly diverse population, the city provides a rich environment for recruiting research participants. It offers access to a critical mass of brilliant international scholars who bring fresh perspectives to our University community. These are just some of the factors that have helped Toronto develop one of North America's largest life science and medical research clusters, IT start-up communities, and more.  

If you have any questions about acclimatizing yourself to the city, such as finding affordable housing or locating a faith-base worship centre, visit Student Life any time.
