Canada is truly a country of communities. Our Web site, designed for tourists and for residents, is the one and only guide to the multicultural character of the city, featuring profiles of more than 80 ethnic communities, including local histories, festivals, food, and art. The guide identifies each community - where its people come from, why, when, and where they settled in Canada. The contribution of each community is also traced, with biographical notes on prominent people whose achievements have been extraordinary. Monuments, memorials, theatres, museums, cultural centres, and restaurants are identified, while detailed maps and photographs of festival events help bring the varied Canadian ethnic communities to life.
The site uses content from Toronto’s Many Faces - a bestseller book by Tony Ruprecht - with author's permission. The famous book, now in 5th edition - is a guide for tourists, a sourcebook for newcomers, a directory for businesses and organizations, and a passport for Torontonians to the many cultures that exist at their doorsteps.
