Why Toronto?

Toronto is one of the greatest cities for a scientist to train and an extraordinary place to live.

 As one of Canada’s largest and most multicultural cities, there is something here for everyone. UHN is located in the downtown core, within “Discovery District”, where world-class biomedical researchers make outstanding scientific discoveries every year. Several research institutes and teaching hospitals throughout other areas of the city also consistently produce top-tier scientists and high impact research. As a whole, scientific research in Toronto has had a tremendous impact on our understanding of disease diagnosis and prognosis, and the development of innovative treatment approaches.

The City of Toronto’s official website provides a good overview of Toronto life, transit, events and attractions.
