About Toronto, Ontario
Metropolitan Toronto originated in 1793. John Graves Simcoe selected the site and Fort York was constructed to protect the colonial seat of British Government in Upper Canada. Earlier, in 1749, French settlers from Quebec had built Fort Rouille on land, which is now Exhibition Park. They destroyed it a few years later due to the frequent raids by both Indians and British.
York grew slowly around its military and political functions. Loyalists from the United States and immigrants from Great Britain and Europe came to York. Lumber and meat were shipped out through the port and financial and commercial institutions were established in the town and contributed to its expansion.
By 1843, York and the area to the north, “The Liberties”, had grown to 9,000 people and as a result of an act passed by the provincial legislature, the City of Toronto was incorporated. The name Toronto is derived from the Huron word for “meeting place”. In 1850, the Townships of York, Scarborough and Etobicoke were incorporated to the north, east and west respectively of the City of Toronto, determining the outer boundaries of what is now the Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto.
Toronto is one of Canada’s busiest and diverse cities. It is Canada’s corporate capital, with the most national and international top-ranked companies in the country. Toronto is also one of the most important financial and transportation centres in Canada and home of the Provincial Parliament.
