Photographer's Note

Salut le monde,

Enjoy this view of the downtown(centre-ville) Toronto from the top of the CN Tower. I have posted many photos from this fabulous place before, so I am not going to give you an overdose of the quick facts of the CN tower. Interested viewers can browse back my previous photos if they want to know more about CN Tower.

Anyways here are some very interesting Demographic Facts about TO (Toronto) that I copied from

Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. In 2004, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) ranked Toronto second, behind Miami, in its "List of World Cities with the Largest Percentage of Foreign-born Population". Though ranking first, Miami's foreign-born population is mostly Hispanic, whereas Toronto's is significantly more diverse. Toronto also ranked ahead of Los Angeles, Vancouver, New York City, Singapore, and Sydney.

Toronto represents a multicultural mosaic. The 2001 Canadian census indicates 42.8% of Toronto's population being of a visible minority. In March 2005, Statistics Canada projected that the visible minority proportion will comprise a majority in both Toronto and Vancouver by 2012.

The majority still claim their origins from Britain. Significant populations of Portuguese, Jamaicans, Chinese, East Indians, Sri Lankans, Armenians, Filipinos and Italians,Vietnamese, Somalis, Poles, Trinidadians, Guyanese, Pakistanis, Greeks, Koreans, West Africans, Arab, and Latin Americans exist throughout the city. Areas like Koreatown, Chinatown, the India Bazaar or Little India, Little Jamaica, Portugal Village, Toronto and Corso Italia or Little Italy are examples of how large these cultural populations are.

In 2001, 18.8% of the Torontonians had no religious affiliation.

While English is the predominant language (51.8%) spoken by Torontonians, Statistics Canada reports that other language groups are significant, including Chinese, Portugese, Tamil, Spanish, Punjabi and Italian. Only 1.4% of city residents claim French (Canada's other official language) as their mother tongue.
