Toronto is Canada's financial and business capital, according to local government officials. Rated as one of the top four global cities with economic clout (Cities of Opportunities Report, PwC, 2014), and topping the North American Cities of the Future, fDi, behind only New York, Toronto is a dynamic, diverse, rising city that provides the ideal business environment for companies looking for a competitive advantage.
Toronto is the fourth largest city in North America, with 2.8 million residents. One-quarter of Canada's population is located within 160 km (100 miles) of the city and more than 60 percent of the population of the U.S. is within a 90-minute flight.
The city’s more than 89,800 businesses choose from a large, highly skilled, multilingual workforce of 1.4 million people – one sixth of the country's workforce – with 64 percent of Toronto residents between the ages of 25 and 64 having a post-secondary education.
