Amid the towering offices and glittering skyscrapers of downtown Toronto is the Toronto Financial District and the heart of Canadian capitalism. Home to numerous global bank headquarters, accounting firms, and insurance companies, the streets of this neighborhood vibrate with energy and electricity Monday through Friday.
Travelers can stroll the city streets, which are lined with iconic buildings like Scotia Plaza, Commerce Court, the Toronto-Dominion Centre, and First Canadian Place—the tallest tower in the district. Explore the area on foot or using the city's underground walkways (known as PATH), which connect to top shopping outlets. For those unfamiliar with Toronto, guided tours including hop-on, hop-off bus options are a great way to learn more about this popular neighborhood.
The Toronto Financial District is located between Queen St West, Front St, Yonge St, and University Ave. Because it is a hub for commerce and suburban commuters, visitors will find the neighborhood ripe with public transit options. Union Station offers a connection to the metro and GO Transit links to buses and a commuter train.
