   Toronto is a world-class international city. It is Canada's most populous metropolis and as such acts as its financial and commercial center, as well as the home of numerous ethnic and cultural communities. In addition to this Toronto and its surroundings form Canada's industrial heart. Despite this, though, Toronto still manages to be a very livable city, with an abundance of parks, gardens and rural bedroom communities.
