Toronto is Canada’s most desirable place to live.

North America’s fourth-largest city always has plenty of immigrants coming to Canada every year, to plant new roots in the provincial capital.

But while Toronto is perhaps one of the greatest cities in the world, what parts of the major urban centre are attractive neighbourhoods to live in? Indeed, there are many to choose from, be it midtown or the downtown core.
