Toronto is Canada's most populous city, fifth-largest in North America by population (after Mexico City, New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago), and the provincial capital of Ontario. It has a population of 2,481,494 (2001 Census), and the population of the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) is estimated at 5,304,100 in 2005 (Statistics Canada). A Greater Toronto Area (GTA), slightly larger than the Toronto CMA, is defined by provincial authorities for urban planning purposes. The city is part of the Golden Horseshoe, a densely populated region in Ontario of over eight million people. Approximately one-quarter of the Canadian population lives within the Golden Horseshoe, and about one-sixth of all Canadian jobs lie within the city limits.

Toronto is a global city, exerting significant regional, national, and international influence, and is one of the world's most multicultural and ethnically diverse cities: 41% of the population was born outside of Canada. Toronto is Canada's financial centre and economic engine, as well as one of the country's most important cultural, art, and health sciences centres.
