12 Reasons To Live In Toronto For At Least A Year

Whether you call it the big smoke, Hogtown, the six, or T-Dot, everyone who lives here can agree that Toronto is the best city on earth. Not only is it filled to the brim with culture, fun and amazing people, Ontario’s capital is known for being inclusive and kind!

From the amazing street art to the beautiful skyline, Toronto has so much to offer to people of all backgrounds. With a large job market, thriving arts community and one of the media hubs in the country, Toronto has something for everyone. Who wouldn’t want to experience the biggest city in the country for at least a year?

So if you’re thinking about making the move to the city, I’m here to tell you to take the leap! Here are 12 reasons you should live in Toronto for at least one year of your life.


Influencers live here.

Canadian bosses like Arlene Dickson, George Stroumboulopoulos, and Ben Mulroney all call Toronto home. If some of the best in the business call this place home who knows who you will sit next to on the TTC!  


It’s a world-class city.

Toronto is quickly becoming one of the most respected places across the globe. With a booming film and media industry, tons of fashion labels, and musicians topping the charts, you can see why everyone is obsessed with us.


Time here is well spent.

You can get more during a year in Toronto than you can anywhere else. Not only will time be well spent, you’ll be rubbing elbows with people who can help advance you in your career.


You will meet new people from across the world.

Diversity is the key to success! It’s not a surprise that the most multicultural place in the world would get you to meet people from different walks of life.


Each neighbourhood is a new place.

Whether you live in Parkdale, the Annex, High Park or the Beaches, each neighbourhood brings a different atmosphere. You can find the perfect place for you amongst the concrete while feeling right at home.


The city is full of adventure.

Head to the Scarborough Bluffs, Lake Ontario or just around the corner to the rock climbing gym. No matter how you seek your thrills, you’re sure to find an adventure in the six that will change your life.


Success starts here.

With top universities, lots of colleges, and independent schools, your first step to success starts here. Not only will you be in a booming city full of different industries, you will also be taught by some of the best professionals in the biz.


Our music scene is the best.

Toronto is the must hit stop on any stars world tour. With plenty of music venues and Toronto raised celebrities like Drake and The Weeknd, you can see why our music scene is very important to us.


Kindness is second nature.

All Canadians are known for being nice but in a big city setting there is nothing better. While others get lost in the hustle and bustle, Torontonians know how to slow it down and lend a helping hand when someone is in need.


Nightlife is insane.

You’ll never have to look very far to have a great night out in the city. With lots of clubs, bars and events, it is unheard of to have a boring night out in Toronto.


All of the food is unreal.

Thanks to Toronto’s multiculturalism the food here is never going to disappoint. No city will compare after you’ve been able to get Caribbean, Asian, American, and European food all on the same block.


It’s the most important city in Canada.

The rest of Canada is still important, don’t get us wrong, but there is just something special about Toronto. A year here is enough time to change your life, so why not just do it?
