Toronto, Canada

Toronto has been called one of the most diverse cities in the world. Districts include Chinatown, Little India, Corso Italia, Little Portugal, Greektown, Little Jamaica and more. The 2011 Canadian census reports over 200 languages are spoken in this city beyond Canada's official languages of English and French. Toronto is a true melting pot of a city, embracing all walks of life and growing stronger for it.

Things to do

We encourage you to get out and explore our beautiful city during your stay here in Toronto! It would take months to fully explore the city, but for those with limited time, the Toronto Tourism website has compiled a helpful list of the "top" attractions. We encourage you to check this list out, as it's a great place for ideas of what to see!  

 

Places to eat

The cuisine in Toronto is hard to beat. You'll find everything here: dim sum, craft beer, sushi, roti, ramen, tacos, burgers, vegan fare, and of course, gourmet poutine! The list of great restaurants in this city is quite long, but if you have an idea of what kind of cuisine you're after, BlogTO has a great search tool that can help you narrow down your options. Of course, you can always ask your local hosts for advice!

 

Suggestions from us

Your hosts have some additional recommendations of what to check out in the city-- and stay tuned for a handy map of spots around the conference venue!

"Kensington Market and Graffiti Alley are a great place to people-watch and take photos. They're within walking distance of each other, and right beside Chinatown. Check out Maison Close 1888 in Kensington, the backyard patio is really sweet!"

The Phantom of the Opera will be in Toronto from June 7-30, 2018

"Toronto is home to one of the most vibrant theatre scenes outside of New York's Broadway and London's West End. The Entertainment District is the place to explore if you want to be at the centre of it all. During IMRF Toronto will be hosting 2 productions that are back by popular demand: Phantom of the Opera and Come From Away."
