Toronto Etymology - Where Does the Name Toronto Come From?

The name “Toronto'' has a separate history from the city’s history itself. Initially, the term "Taronto'' referred to a channel of water located between Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching on maps as early as 1675. Later on, the name passed southward and was eventually given to a new fort located at the mouth of the Humber River. Fort Toronto was considered the first settlement in the area and lent its name to what became the city of Toronto.

Why Book Student Accommodation in Toronto? 

Toronto is considered an international multicultural centre with a distinct population of 200 different ethnic origins. According to QS Ranking 2019, Toronto is ranked the 11th best city in the world for university student life. As a college student studying in Toronto, various opportunities are presented to you, from volunteering to internships to jobs, all of which guarantee a promising career and future. The city has varied cultural institutions which include many museums and galleries, festivals and public events, entertainment districts, national historic sites, and sports activities attracting over 43 million tourists each year. Toronto is known for its many high-rise buildings and skyscrapers. It’s particularly known for the CN Tower which is the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere. The city is also a centre for television production, motion picture production, music, and theatre.

Toronto Climate

Weather and Temperature

The city is located on the shore of Lake Ontario forming a 46-kilometre shoreline. Toronto Islands extend into the lake creating the Toronto Harbour. The location of the city shapes its climate into four distinct seasons. However, the city’s weather differs from day to day due to the rapid passage of weather systems. You will experience a hot humid summer with an average temperature of 24°C and cold snowy winter where the temperature might drop below 0°C. Make sure to pack heavy clothes when packing your bag for your university so you can be ready for the city’s weather. Precipitation is evenly distributed throughout the year, but summer is usually the wettest season. 

What to Pack and Toronto Local Timing

Make sure you pack all your sweaters and a heavy coat with rain boots and an umbrella to brace yourself during the winter season in Toronto. However, if you’re visiting the city during the summer season, just pack the comfiest, lightest clothes you can find. UTC−5 (EST) is Toronto’s local time zone, while UTC−4 (EDT) is the city’s local time zone during the summer. Daylight Saving Time starts on 14 March (1 hour forward) and ends on 7 November (1 hour backwards), so you should keep this in mind when booking your travels and student accommodation in Toronto.

Is Toronto Urban or Rural? 

The city of Toronto is considered to be urban. 

What are Some Must-Visit Places in Toronto?

You will find a lot of activities to participate in as well as many famous places to visit. The green landscapes and parks can be found all around the city like High Park which offers sporting facilities, a zoo, cultural hubs, and ponds. As mentioned earlier, the Lake Ontario shoreline is a huge part of the city where you can visit the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse and enjoy the scenery. You can also drop by the CN Tower, the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere, and check it out!

Universities in Toronto

University students apply for various Toronto universities to enrol in top-ranked departments. International students can study at a wide range of universities such as OCAD University, Ryerson University, and the University of Toronto.

Transportation in Toronto

The high rank of Toronto as an ideal student city comes from various aspects, one of which is the interconnected network of transportation.
