If you like a fast-paced city that never sleeps, rent to own a home in Toronto! From arts and sports events to every type of food festival that you can imagine, this vibrant city has everything you need (and didn’t know you needed!).
How is life in Toronto?
Toronto’s motto is “Diversity Our Strength” and you can definitely see this wherever you go. Half of Toronto’s population was born outside of Canada. Thanks to this, you get to learn about so many cultures and are able to try delicious authentic plates. Torontonians always seem to be busy and as they would say “in their own zone”; but you can always struck an interesting conversation with someone on your daily commute or if you join a club or activity. Once you make a friend in this city, you have made a friend for life.
Talking about people who live in Toronto, the population here is close to three million. This means that you may feel a bit overwhelmed at first if you’re not used to living in such a crowded city. The good news is that you will get used to it…eventually. Since there are so many inhabitants, the rent prices in Toronto might be higher than other cities in Canada, but there are lots of high-paying job opportunities and with an organized budget you will be able to enjoy living here.
Toronto’s transit system, TTC, is one of Canada’s favourites. It’s a modern network of buses, streetcars and trains that can take you from one extreme of the city to the other in no time. It’s hard to get lost in this system, especially because most buses will always take you to a subway station. Also, operators are very friendly and can guide you if you’re not sure what route you should take.
Usually the TTC is pretty reliable, but when the trains stop you should expect packed stations. Sometimes when this happens it’s better to take a cab or just walk to a bus stop.
Weather in Toronto
Winters here are relatively mild compared to other Canadian locations. You get heavy snowfalls often, but the city is prepared for this and the streets get cleaned in no time. Toronto summers are very hot and humid. The bright side of this is that you can visit the lake and have a perfect beach day (just remember to stay hydrated!). When it comes to the transition seasons, spring is pretty rainy and fall is gorgeous. You can visit High Park during autumn to take artsy photos with the falling leaves.
