Canada’s largest city is ready for its close-up.
A Vibrant Urban Centre
Hosts and attendees of CPD events can enjoy the myriad offerings of one of the world’s most renowned and vibrant urban centres. Consistently recognized as a top destination to live and visit, the City of Toronto boasts an abundance of cultural treasures and natural beauty, attracting over 25 million Canadian, American and international visitors annually. A new express train connecting Pearson Airport to the downtown core has made the city more accessible for travellers, providing quick access to the revitalized waterfront and other attractions that recently earned Toronto 7th spot on the New York Times list of 52 places to visit in 2016.
A Community of Communities
Toronto is simultaneously a global city and a community of communities, where world-class innovation converges with a host of vastly unique public spaces and emerging neighbourhoods. Guests will experience the cultural mosaic that makes Toronto widely regarded as the most diverse city in the world. Authentic international experiences permeate the city’s core and surrounding areas from Chinatown to Greektown, Little Italy to Little Portugal and countless more, each brimming with food, flare and inspiration.
Home to the Best in Healthcare
Access to the country’s most prominent associations for health sciences professionals makes Toronto a top destination for Continuing Medical Education. Continuing Professional Development hosts and manages over 60 events in the city each year, offering inter-professional audiences the premiere opportunity to network and learn with industry leaders in a city of enormous promise, talent and ambition.
The University of Toronto plays a key role in the city’s reputation as a global centre for research and innovation. The Faculty of Medicine and its extensive network of affiliate hospitals comprise one of the world’s leading health sciences centres, conducting $974 billion in research last year alone. Historic achievements like the discovery of insulin have cemented the Faculty of Medicine’s storied legacy, and the combination of funding and resources continues to lead to revolutionary health advances like Canada’s first hand and forearm transplants. Toronto’s foremost centres of medical research are situated in the Discovery District, just south of the university’s St. George Campus and in the heart of the city.
