CANADA - While I have visited numerous cities and locations in Canada, my business experience has been in Toronto. Toronto is Canada's largest city and is the fifth most populous city in North America. It is one of the most diverse cities in the world with more than half its population born outside Canada. This means that you will find virtually every kind of restaurant and cultural experience.
If you are a sports fan, Toronto is the only Canadian city with representation in seven major league sports, with teams in the National Hockey League, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, Canadian Football League, Major League Soccer, Canadian Women's Hockey League and W-League.
Toronto is a major scene for theatre and other performing arts, with more than fifty ballet and dance companies, six opera companies, two symphony orchestras and a host of theaters. The city is home to the National Ballet of Canada, the Canadian Opera Company, and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
The business center of Toronto is the Financial District.The five largest financial institutions of Canada, collectively known as the Big Five, are headquartered in Toronto, as are a majority of Canada's corporations. My work in Toronto has been with Zurich North America. Their representatives are managing insurance programs for major companies and developing new business. I also work with the Canadian Golf Course Superintendent's Association. Both of these organizations are committed to training in communication skills.
