About 77 % of Canadians live in cities and towns. Toronto is the largest city in Canada, which is the gateway to south-western Ontario, the wealthiest and most densely populated part of Canada. Ontario is an important educational centre. There is the University of Toronto with its affiliated colleges: Victoria College, Trinity College and St Michaels College. Toronto is the countrys business centre and home to the largest companies and banks.

Montreal is unlike any other city in Canada. The oldest part of the city, Old Montreal, dates from the 1700s. Montreal is not a multistoried city, with the exception of two or three sky- scrapers used by offices and banks, the living quarters are mostly three-four storied buildings. At night the city glitters with countless neon sings, advertisements on night clubs and cinemas. It is curious to note that such a great city actually has no permanent drama theatre of its own. One of the oldest Canadian universities- the McGill University is situated here. Montreal hosted the 1976 Summer Olympics.

Vancouver is a beautiful, rapidly growing commercial, transportation and forest-products manufacturing centre. Vancouver is Canadas chief Pacific port. Annual International Festival of the arts is held here. Vancouver hosted the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

Ottawa, the capital of Canada, is one of the countrys most attractive cities.

Ottawa is encircled and interlaced by three rivers and a lazy canal with the rolling Laurentian Hills as its backdrop. Yet despite its scenic charm, the architectural dignity of many of its government buildings and the many miles of scenic drive bordering its Waterways, Ottawa has about it an unfinished air which reflects the young and developing country of which it is the capital.

Canadas Houses of Parliament stand in a setting of great natural beauty. It has many parks, museums, art galleries and universities. Some of Ottawas historic buildings go back to the early 1800s.
