Tips to help you Organize your Move to Toronto

Tips to help you Organize your Move to Toronto

With a population of more than 5.5 million residents, Toronto is the largest Metropolis in Canada. Some of the amazing things about living in Toronto include the way the City has embraced its cultural diversity, its world-class food scene, low crime rates, and being the city that never sleeps. It is wonderful that you have decided to make this beautiful and historic city your next home, but before you move in, it is important that you understand the following things about life in Toronto.


You do not need to know French to live here

While it is true that French is the second official language in the City, you do not need to know the language to operate in the City. Most of Toronto’s residents speak fluent English. English is also the language of communication in most of the government offices, and you will have an easy time getting around.


Toronto is very safe, but you still need to take care

It is common to see people avoiding downtown in other cities around the world for security reasons. However, most of Toronto’s population does not live away in some suburb, they are right in the thick of things, which means you will not feel desertion. Generally, you do not have to be terrified about walking around the streets of Toronto at night, but you need to be mindful enough to lock up your bike because they do get stolen a lot.


Toronto is a foodie heaven

Start with the fact that the city has more than six thousand restaurants, that is quite a large number of places with different and delicious cuisines to try out. The amazing thing about the food scene in Toronto is that you can expect a different cultural experience when you walk into every different restaurant. Note that most of these places are not going to be cheap, but if you snoop around a bit and do some price comparisons, you will get a few places where the food will actually be too good for the bill.


Pet lover’s paradise

Have you ever been to cities where it almost felt as if pets were prohibited? Well, Toronto is not one of those places. That being said, it is important to adhere to general rules, such as not allowing your animal to poop in certain public parks. There could be a few apartments where pets are not allowed, but they are not that many, and you can always choose a place where pets are allowed.


Public transport is awesome

Most foreigners who come to Toronto complain that owning a car is tough and that the traffic tickets are vicious. Well, if you would like to avoid this situation altogether, you should think about using the public transport terminuses around the city. Contrary to what you may have heard, the road, track and rail network is good enough, and it will only cost you about three dollars a day. To manage your expectations, keep in mind that Toronto, like other cities, gets crowded sometimes because most people work downtown.


Winters are the worst, but the beach situation in summer is awesome

Come to Toronto prepared for the four full seasons. The winter does get cold, and you will need warm jackets, heaters and lots of waterproof boots. On the other hand, when the summer rolls in, the beaches are a delight. You can cycle, rollerblade, sunbathe, swim, surf, and all other summer activities.


Toronto was in 2015 named the best overall in the city, which goes to show how awesome your experience living here will be. With the few tips about life in the city, you can comfortably move in and start your adventure.
