1. Multiculturalism
2. Public Transit (compared to US great, compared to Europe..meh)
3. Opportunity

A new job opportunity & to move closer to family. I love the city though!

$$$ and opportunity

The woman I followed from Washington DC, to Florida, to Massachusetts, returned home in Toronto. So naturally, I immigrated 😍
Now married with 1.5 yr old son and planning 2nd. We’re 14 years in.

I did a bit of that early on to get extra info on where I stood with other potential dates but felt comfortable with my competition and ultimately got them cut

I have always seen myself living in an idyllic neighborhood. When I had an opportunity to work in Toronto, I grabbed the chance. I'm living my dream now. I just love the perfect blend of business, culture and entertainment.

A job! My sister had been living here for five years. She convinced me to come here and find a job. So far, I am loving it here.
