Creativity, Community, Innovation: Toronto, Canada
Two weeks ago, we set off on a month-long expedition across North America in search of creativity, community, and innovation. Our latest dispatch explores Canada's largest city.
Two weeks ago, we set off on a month-long expedition across North America in search of creativity, community, and innovation. The second city on our journey was Toronto, Ontario, Canada’s largest city and the fifth most populous on the continent.
Toronto is considered one of the world’s most livable cities, a title it’s earned due to its cleanliness, low crime, diversity and high standard of living. 49% of Toronto’s population were born outside of Canada, making it one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world (or the most, according to the Torontonians we met.) Little Ethiopia, Little Portugal, two Chinatowns – Toronto’s multitude of ethnic enclaves gives the city a distinct cultural texture, arguably unmatched anywhere else.
