Toronto brings small-town warmth to big city life. Canada’s largest city is made up of many urban villages that reflect Toronto’s multicultural roots. Learn English in Toronto during the summer and see the city come to life with a carnival atmosphere of weekly festivals and street fairs. You can also choose to relax along the waterfront or in one of the city’s many green spaces. If you would like your EC Experience to include cultural influences from around the world, Toronto is the EC city to be in.
