Time to Pack Up Your Bags and Move to Toronto?
Over and over again, Toronto has been voted as one of the top places to live, not only in Canada but the whole world. It’s obviously a great city if that is the case, but if you need some more convincing to pack up your bags, these are 8 reasons you should move to Toronto.
8. A Great Transit System (When It’s Working)
The people that live here are usually annoyed with it, but if you take a second to appreciate it, the Toronto Transit Commission is very vital to Toronto. You can travel from the west all the way to the east of Toronto on the train and can get pretty much anywhere in between by bus or streetcar.
7. Blue Jays, Raptors, Maple Leafs
Toronto’s pro sports teams are the talk of their respective leagues right now. The Blue Jays are in the playoffs, the Raptors made it to the conference finals last year and the Auston Matthews is the best thing to happen to the Maple Leafs in a long time.
6. Underrated Beaches
There aren’t many cities where you can be downtown in the busiest part of the city and cross the street to head to the beach. Toronto’s waterfront is beautiful and there are many beaches throughout the city to prove it.
5. Food and Restaurants Galore
If you love food, Toronto is definitely the place for you. It seems like there is a new “it” restaurant every week, so be sure to stay on top of things or just visit your favourite go-to spots which you will quickly find.
4. Celebrities All Around
Toronto is flooded with celebrities all the time. With over three professional sports teams, a booming film industry, and being home to some of the greatest musicians in the industry right now, don’t be surprised if you find yourself eating dinner next to a star from your favourite Netflix series.
3. Festivals on Festivals on Festivals
Once the summer sun hits Toronto you can be sure there is some sort of festival taking place every weekend. Whether it is a festival celebrating your favourite artists, junk food or Caribbean culture, there is something for everyone.
2. Fun, Fun And More Fun

It is almost as if Toronto never sleeps. No matter what night of the week it is, there is always something to do in this city. You can visit your local bar and find great talent playing their latest song, walk the streets and find local artists displaying their work or play board games all night with drinks and food. You can always have a fun time when you’re looking for one.
1. Most diverse city in the world
Toronto is definitely known for its culture and the best part about that is that it is comprised of cultures from all over the world. Toronto has been named the most diverse city in the world on several occasions and you will have no problem identifying it when you arrive in the city. Little Italy, Little India, Koreatown, Chinatown(s), Little Jamaica are just examples of the various countries you can experience without even leaving Toronto.
