The City of Toronto's motto is "Diversity our Strength" and throughout the entire GTA diversity of race, religion and lifestyle are celebrated and set Toronto apart from many other world cities. Over 100 languages are spoken here and you are likely to find an expression of that culture in at least one neighbourhood, whether in the form of an ethnic event, restaurant or retail shop. It's a diversity that continues to grow: between 2001 and 2005 the Toronto area saw an average of 107,000 international immigrants arrive each year and almost three-quarters of Torontonians aged 15 and older have direct ties to immigration. The GTA is truly the place where the world meets, and mixes.
