What is the Greater Toronto Area?


Row of idling taxi's, waiting for a fare. The Greater Toronto Area, often abbreviated to GTA, is the most populous metropolitan area in Ontario – and even Canada. More than 5 million people live in this area, which consists of the City of Toronto plus the Regional Municipalities of York, Halton, Peel and Durham. Approximately 3 million people work here, in more than 100,000 companies. The GTA is Canada's business and manufacturing capital – way ahead of other areas in the country.

Influences Reaching Beyond GTA Borders


Hamilton, Regional Municipality of Niagara, Kitchener-Waterloo and Guelph all have significant ties to Metropolitan Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area, but are too far away in order to be officially considered part of the GTA.
