We are fortunate enough in Toronto to have the chance to engage with people from every cultural background across the globe. We are enriched by diversity in our business sector, in our culinary sector, famed among the most diverse in the world, and we have churches and temples of every conceivable persuasion. We can hear hundreds of languages on our streets.
