Historical Description[]

In the late 1700’s, Toronto was founded as “The Town of York” after the land had been surrendered to the British. Previously, the Town had been a strategic settlement used to control the fur trade in the northern regions of Canada. Toronto played a key role in the Underground Railroad that was used in the early to mid 19th century, allowing recently freed slaves safe passage to Canada and free states of the Northern United States. During this time, Toronto also housed many immigrants from across the world, rapidly increasing the population and size of the city.

In modern times, Toronto continues to act as a destination for a majority of immigrants who have moved to Canada. With more than half of its residents born outside of Canada, the city is home to a prominent and unique cultural hub for Music and Theatre. With a population of almost 3 million, Toronto competes as one of the largest cities and tech hubs in North America.
