In 1720 the French established a small trading post there and called it
Fort Toronto. Toronto is a native American Word for " meeting place".
The city was founded at the mouth of the Humber River and Lake Ontario.
The natives and the European settlers used the city for fur trading and
was an outpost along the carrying place for canoes. The city’s original
English name was York, but it was destroyed by the Americans in the War
in 1812. It was rebuilt and renamed TORONTO in 1834. Now Toronto has a
population of 3.5 Million people.

Information about the City:

The longest street of the World called Young Street runs from the
harbour in Toronto to Rainy River, Ontario, and has a length of 1900
Toronto is one of the safest cities in the world and also the most
ethnically diverse city. Toronto welcomes more immigrants than any other
city in Canada. East Asians, Caribbean’s, Jewish and European people
arrive every day and so the city is like a mosaic. There are three
Chinatowns, a Portuguese Village and a Jewish community. There also
exist some Polish bakeries and butcher shops and sometimes there is a
Caribbean festival. All people live in peaceful neighbourhoods.


For tourists there is always a good time to visit Toronto. But in winter
it isn’t so cold as somebody might think, because the lakes protect the
city from a bitter cold winter. There exist some subways and some
shopping areas also placed in the underground. You can go skating and
play hockey but there isn’t any mountain to go skiing. One of the most
beautiful tourist attractions are the Niagara Falls.


In Toronto you can meet the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team and learn
the game by the people who invented it. You can also see the Blue Jays (
a Baseball Team ), the Argnonauts ( a Football Team ) and the all - New
Raptors ( a Basketball Team ).
