Life in Toronto
Vibrant and Diverse Urban Centre
University of Toronto students live and study in one of the world’s most vibrant and diverse urban centres. The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) can fulfill any interest — from professional sports to literature; a bustling theatre scene to a leading fashion design industry; thought-provoking lectures to innovative medical research; and much more. Cosmopolitan gems like Chinatown, The Gay Village, Little Italy, the Annex and Kensington Market blend with the natural beauty of Toronto Island, the Scarborough Bluffs and Mississauga’s Greenbelt. Commonly identified as one of the world’s “most livable cities,” Toronto recently ranked as one of the world’s “best places to live” in a report by The Economist Intelligence Unit.
The University of Toronto’s MD Program is tightly integrated in this setting – both physically, with its two campuses in the central and western GTA — and through its students, faculty, staff and alumni, who are deeply involved in the city’s multitude of communities and endeavors.
More on Mississauga
Mississauga — located just a 30-minute drive from Toronto — is Canada's sixth largest city. It features small neighborhoods with an eclectic core. Just over half of residents who live here today were born in another country. From its rich history to its cultural diversity, Mississauga is a great place to study, live, work and play.
