Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19 which shut down the globe for over a year, Toronto, Canada was one of the fastest growing cities on the North American continent. With the global pandemic beginning to ease, Toronto is expected to begin seeing a large influx of immigration--and for good reason!
Thriving Job Market
Toronto has a diversified economy making it an ideal city for a variety of industries. While it is also known for its finance, real estate and health sectors, its technology sector is the fastest growing. In fact, it was ranked one of the top cities in the world for “brain gain” in the 2019 Scoring Tech Talent Report. With a booming technology industry, many immigrants who specialize in the tech field may be able to qualify for Canada’s Express Entry program.
A Culture Hub
Since Toronto sees over 100,000 immigrants each year, it has become a metropolis known for its culture and sense of community. Toronto is the most populous Canadian city with almost half of its residents being foreign-born.
Since it is the most populous city in Canada, Toronto has a rather robust infrastructure. There is an efficient public transportation system made up of buses, streetcars, subways and railway. Plus it has two airports, Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ). The city also contains six universities and four colleges, one of which, the University of Toronto, consistently ranks high on international education rankings.
With its booming economy and rich cultural heritage, Toronto is a great place to live for those looking for a metropolitan experience that experiences all four seasons and is continuing to grow.
