Toronto is a melting pot of people coming from all over the world, and it is one of the best places to be if you are interested in learning various aspects of different cultures. A large number of newcomers in Toronto is International students, and every one of them makes a significant contribution to the economic and cultural development of the city. EC Toronto students, you are part of this group of people the city wants to celebrate!
