ISPE Midyear 2018

Welcome to Toronto!

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and is one (if not the most) diverse cities in the world. It's a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. We have put together a short list of places to see, eat and explore!

You can also explore all using a Google map we developed! Click here!
