Frequently Asked Questions about Toronto

FAQ about toronto

How safe is Toronto?

Toronto is very safe. It is safe to walk the streets at almost any hour of the day or night. The only caveat being to avoid traditionally run-down areas after dark. Do this and little will likely go wrong.
 

What is there to do in Toronto?

Toronto is a world-class city with a large and varied population. If the world has got it, Toronto probably has it too. Expats will find that there is plenty to see and do in Toronto. Cultural activities and artistic endeavours are celebrated and there are a wide variety of performances and festivals.

If that’s not enough, Toronto boasts an excellent array of museums and art galleries such as the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Royal Ontario Museum. Boating, swimming and fishing are popular on the nearby lakes. There are a number of sports teams to watch, notably the Blue Jays in baseball and the Maple Leafs in ice hockey. For nightlife, there is a great deal from which to choose, with restaurants, clubs and bars open into the late hours of the morning.
 

Do I need a car in Toronto?

In heavy traffic it would be more comfortable. Canada is a big country and having a car allows exploration beyond the city limits. However, within the city, there are few places that cannot be reached with the public transport system, so a car is an unnecessary expense for most.
 

What is the cost of living in Toronto like?

The cost of living in Toronto is high and it is one of the 50 most expensive cities in the world. Still, the salaries are higher to match, and the benefits of Canadian schooling and healthcare usually outweigh the slight loss of buying power.
