Located on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario, farther south than Minnesota and much of Michigan, Toronto is one of the most accessible cities in North America by road, air, rail and water. We are only a one hour drive away for about five million Canadians, and within a 90-minute flight for 60 per cent of the U.S. population.
