Canada's largest city, Toronto is consistently ranked as one of the world’s most livable cities. Home to almost 3 million people, it is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture.

Take a look at Toronto Life for insights and updates on the latest in city news, restaurants, culture, style, sports and of course, music.

We also suggest you check out See Toronto Now, Toronto Theatre and Now Toronto for things to see, do and experience in our city.

Looking for more ideas? Please visit BlogTO or plan a side trip to some great destinations in Ontario including Stratford and the Niagara region (yes there are  the Falls, but there is so much more, including wine country). And don’t forget a visit to our neighbour, the Royal Ontario Museum.

If you are sport minded, depending on the season, we are the proud home of the Raptors, the Blue Jays, and the - uh - Maple Leafs. With a little  planning, you could find yourself experiencing professional sports at its best. 

 So plan your stay - music, culture, sports, attractions, - something for everyone.








Home to Canada's largest number of musicians and music venues, Toronto is a creative and business hub for music in Canada.

 While in Toronto, plan on attending a performance of the Canadian Opera Company or the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

Whole Note Magazine is always a good bet for information on current and upcoming performances in and around Toronto. 

 Check out Toronto Life and Toronto (the official website of Tourism Toronto)  for current  shows, concerts and events.

 Blog TO’s Best Jazz Bars and’s Best Jazz Clubs also have up to date information on  jazz venues and shows, and if you are planning to be here in the early summer, consider the Toronto Jazz Festival… considered one of the world’s best.

 Music around every corner…
