Toronto is the capital city of the Province of Ontario, nestled on the shores of the Great Lakes in Canada.  A vibrant and diverse city with a population of 2.6 million, Toronto is one of the cultural and economic centers of Canada.  The workshop will be held in Toronto’s downtown area, next to Queen’s Park, the provincial legislature, and the University of Toronto.  Close to the renowned Royal Ontario Museum, and attractions such as Toronto’s waterfront, the Toronto Islands, Ripley’s Aquarium, the CN Tower and EdgeWalk, the theatre and distillery districts, facilities for our professional hockey, baseball, football and basketball teams and so much more within easy transit access, your visit to Toronto will be a time to remember!
