Canada’s largest city and the fourth-largest metropolis in North America, Toronto welcomed more than 27.5 million visitors a year before the pandemic, making it Canada’s top tourist destination, according to Destination Toronto, the city’s tourism marketing arm.
As travel resumes, Canadian tourists predominate, with traffic from the United States just beginning to return and foreign visitors still scarce, according to agency data. Summer is generally high season; this may be the last year to enjoy Toronto in warm weather before the city is overwhelmed again.
More than 5,100 restaurants have closed across the province of Ontario during the pandemic, according to Restaurants Canada, a national trade organization. But the food scene in this omnivorous city has come back to life. In May, Michelin chose Toronto as the first Canadian city to have its own guide.
