Welcoming over 27.5 million visitors annually, Toronto is the leading tourism destination in Canada. This bold, dynamic city offers superb attractions, music and events backed by the best convention and sports facilities in Canada.

As the capital of Ontario and Canada’s largest city, Toronto is bustling with life everywhere you look. The city sits right on the shores of Lake Ontario–which is great for boating but creates interesting climate/weather all year round!

Toronto is considered one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world, with more than half the population born outside of the city. With Greektown, Little Italy, Koreatown and Chinatown all within city limits, travelers may feel as if they've seen more than a couple of countries after a visit to Toronto.

The city is also home to one of the tallest freestanding towers in the world, the CN Tower, and the world's largest underground shopping mall, PATH. But aside from visiting its biggest attractions, Toronto should be experienced like any other big city: sipping a cocktail in a corner restaurant, browsing multicultural shops on quirky neighborhood blocks and hopping on and off the subway for a night on the town. 

AI·CRV participants will be in the province’s capital and will enjoy scenic trails for joggers, art galleries and museums for the history buffs, and cocktails and music for the night owls. To learn more about tourism in Toronto, please go to:
