Toronto, Canada Trends

Updated on September 17, 2018

Ms. Inglish is a successful Employment & Training pro, setting Midwest regional records with tens of thousands placed in gainful employment.


Toronto is a large city full of attractions that boost travel and tourism businesses during all seasons. An example is the fascinating Yonge Street, a National Historic Site of Canada and the longest street in the world.

Yonge Street has been in the Guinness Records as the longest street in the world, running from Lake Ontario to Lake Simcoe and 1896 km. It was built in the 1790s along a First Nations trail.
Yonge Street has been in the Guinness Records as the longest street in the world, running from Lake Ontario to Lake Simcoe and 1896 km. It was built in the 1790s along a First Nations trail.

A Giant City in Canada

This city is huge not only in land-area size and population, but also in the vastness of its multiculturalism, business, tourist attractions, cultural opportunities, Chinatown, is impossible to name them all outside of a large directory.

Over 5,600,000 people live in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), with a little fewer than half of them living in the City of Toronto itself. This makes the population nearly three times that of my city and our streets are already so crowded that sometimes its faster to walk a mile than to drive it. I think one could stay lost in Toronto for several days.

Millions of tourists visit Toronto and its suburbs annually, while permanent residency is not increasing much (less than a single percent yearly).

A colleague of mine talked about his visits to Toronto often and described his favorite record shop - one he visited as often as he could take vacations. On his first visit, the moment he stepped in the doorway he knew he'd been there before, but he had not. Before proceeding into the shop, he knew every corner of it on its different levels and in different rooms. It was like magic for him.

This shop was Sam The Record Man, which became a chain, but declined and closed the original large store in 2007.

Photos around the Internet of the interior show that it looked exactly like one of the large 5-and-10-cent stores in Central Ohio, except that Sam's was completely filled with records and musical items.

Live, Work and Retire in Toronto

Another friend of mine takes vacation days from work to spend many long weekends in Toronto's Chinatown, her favorite spot and the site of many festivals.

With all the hurry to get to good times in Toronto, why is it not on the Top 10 Best Places to Live list produced by MoneySense each year?

It seems that "Everyone" wants to go have fun in Toronto, but the city usually does not make the Top 10 Best Places to Work, Live, or Retire. It is a bit like the locale in the film Blade Runner (1982) with its frenetic supercity of the future.

The Fourth Most Livable City in the World

MoneySense uses a different set of criteria for choosing its choice cities, while The Economist magazine awards Toronto the fourth-place standing in its Top 10 Most Livable Cities in the World roundup.

Criteria for selection to this list include a significant availability of goods and services, low overall personal risk, and a well-maintained, updated infrastructure. The threat of terrorism is considered low in these cities as well. However, The Economist chooses largely English-speaking cities and this has drawn criticism from media outlets.

Elements that lower Toronto's ranking for MoneySense:

Unemployment rate:

  • Victoria BC (#1) - 3.3% in the early 2010s
  • Toronto ON (#79 or 85) - 7.6%

Number of Days yearly befow 0oC:

  • Victoria - 53
  • Toronto - 148

Violent Crimes per 100,000 population:

  • Victoria - 859
  • Toronto - 968

Number of Homeless per 100.000 population:

  • Victoria - 1.2
  • Toronto - 3.6

Population Growth from 2001 - 2006:

  • Victoria - 5.80%
  • Toronto - 0.88%

The cost of housing also takes up, on average, a larger proportion of household income in Ontario than it does in many other Canadian cities.

MoneySense's Best Places to Live and Retire in Canada

The cities names in Ontario Province are located around the healthy economic area called "The Golden Horseshoe."

  1. Kingston ON
  2. Ottawa-Gatineau ON
  3. Burlington ON
  4. London ON
  5. Fredericton NB
  6. Vancouver BC
  7. Victoria BC
  8. Courtenay BC
  9. Cobourg ON
  10. Joliette QC

Ontario is MoneySense's top pick for best province for retirement, with five communities, many near Toronto, ranking in the top 10 recomendations.

Cabbagetown is Alive

The Cabbagetown Preservation Association maintains a mission to preserve the historical landmarks of this region at the east end of Downtown Toronto. This includes architectural integrity of the neighborhood in an official Heritage Conservation District.

Revitalization of urban areas and other neighborhoods of Toronto is important to residents, visitors, and business enterprises in that ongoing development and preservation increases economic growth and improves ways of life.

A great many activities are ongoing in Cabbagetown. These include the annual Forsythia Festival each May, Cabagetown Festival every September, and productions of the Toronto Dance Theatre and School, the Danny Grossman Dance Company, Canadian Children’s Dance Theatre, and TILT Sound + Motion. The Annual Cabbagetown Short Film & Video Festival is also a treat here.

      The hub is rich in content, comparative in data collection, critical in analysis, true in appreciation and fair in subject selection. Simple, serene and yet stylish and attractive. The hub gives food for thought that to work in a way that is of use to others is the real work and never goes unnoticed and unappreciated. The hub is up by all standards. Those living in Canada- Toranto Ontario have been introduced to the world so nicely.

      May God bless all every where.

      Great, tremendously in-depth hub, Patty! You absolutely rock at these kinds of articles.

      I did a little, "Yay!" to see London in the #4 spot for retirement. As I'm already there, I won't have far to go when I reach that stage. :)

      Anyone in the finance or IT field probably wouldn't have too much trouble finding work in T.O. Bay St. is our version of Wall St., so the stock exchange is there, along with corporate offices of the major banks.

      The living is very expensive but it's a really interesting city. You should come and visit sometime! ;)

      Great hub on my hometown! I think Torontonians are notorious for complaining about our city more than anything else....sure the transit isn't necessarily world class, sure the city leadership can be questionable at time, but overall I think we've got one of the best cities in the world. Now if only we could do something about this weather....

      Looks beautiful there, I read that Gun violence in Canada usually measures into the single and double digits. While here in the States, we're talking into the 10k area. In some areas people up there don't feel a need what-so-ever to lock their doors. I would love it up there.

      i used to live in Mississauga which is right outside of toronto. I think people would be surprised to see how many beautiful things are in Toronto (not just the CN tower, although that pretty cool). My favorite is the steam whistle factory right below the CN tower. It used to be an old train station and its an amazing place to see

      As I am planning to go for Canada, this will be really informative. It's quite hard to get job in such a big country, if something is known earlier it would be good for me only.
