A City Within a Park

Nathan Phillps Square
The site for the upcoming 2011 ABA Annual Meeting – Toronto - is also known as the “City within a Park”. This moniker is likely derived from the fact the city has an array of public parks and ravines protected by Toronto’s Region Conservation Authority, one of 36 conservation authorities in Ontario, Canada. While in Toronto, you may want to visit Nathan Phillips Square, the city’s main square downtown which serves as the entrance to City Hall and holds several other notable attractions.

Here are some interesting facts about Toronto:

It is the financial center of Canada, the 3rd largest in North America, employing over 205,000 people in the financial sector.

180 million customers live and work within a day's drive of Toronto, including 125 million Americans or roughly 40 per cent of the U.S. population.

Half of Toronto's population (1,237,720) was born outside of Canada, a slight increase from 48 per cent in 1996.
