  • Totally lost under new management

    by

    Deceivingly paired up with a local church, this place runs now under new management, which goes for looks and money. People who don't agree with the new course are forced out.

    Unique Quality: Money machine for a local church, it's all about the money and no longer about the people living here. The old management and the students were forced out, and those who cannot or do not want to pay for the coming renovation will share their fate. It is a shame that a scam like this can benefit from tax credits, at the expense of the Canadian tax payer...

    Directions: Don't go there...

Hi,
I am an immigrant entry visa holder. I am planning to travel to Toronto in April with my family. Anybody can suggest some decent place to stay? And any other tips for a new immigrant to the city.

Thanks and regards,

Depends on how much you want to pay. Anywhere downtown the rent is very high, and property is more expensive. There are many cities surrounding Toronto., Like Mississauga, where there are many immigrants living, its a little more expensive then other areas like Scarboro, but alot more safer.

If you're looking for a place to stay in Mississauga, stay near square one Hurontario and Burnhamthorpe. There are many condos available and more being built every year. That location is also near a major bus terminal where you can get to most cities in and around Toronto. Toronto is a great city, but Mississauga is alot better. Ive lived in and around both., Plus you'll be coming in April when the weather will be good.

Hi If you're talking about Mississauga, for one person you can get a room for $400 to $800., and for an apartment.,2 bedroom, its between $1000 to $2000, alot depends on location. East Mississauga is relatively cheaper because its not as nice as West Mississauga,. and North Mississauga theres alot of new houses and apartments being built, so its mostly new stuff there.

Hope this helps, if you're looking for recent ads for places, check out craigs list, it has alot.

Travel Tips for Toronto

DO NOT VISIT IN WINTER

by AlekToronto

Toronto is VERY COLD in winter. JANUARY TO MARCH is the coldest time of year. Torontonians are cranky and the windchill is brutal. Anyone wanting to visit Toronto wait at least till mid-late April. Spring is the best time to come to Toronto..trust me.

Visit Centeral Ville Island....

by SACHIA

Visit Centeral Ville Island. It is so beautiful and must see place. It cost only $3.00 to get to the Island. Take your camera and take beautiful picture. People eats Kentacky Fried Chicken on the regular basis. In every corner there is a Kentacky Fried Chicken.

Like NYC, only civilized

by jem7265

... a snotty remark I read once. Toronto is the place for an out-of-car expericne. Here locals gather and play chess and backgammon in a small public square just off Yonge Street two blocks north of the Eaton Centre.

Liquor and Spirits...

by Todd64

Buy your liquor and spirits from the LCBO. Our beer and alcohol distribution is controlled by the Provincial Government, therefore it is sold solely in Government-run shops. No popping to the corner variety store at 1:00am for that bottle of Absolut here. You've got until 9:00pm on weekdays (6 & 5, Sat. & Sun.) if you want to stock that liquor cabinet with various intoxicating treats. The L.C.B.O Website

Traffic and Transit in T.O.

by ronnie77

1. When passing a streetcar on the inside, NEVER make the pass when the streetcar is stopped. You MUST stop behind the rear doors until the doors are closed. Lifetime Toronto guys like me always look to the right when exiting a streetcar, but others don't.

2. Avoid driving on east/west streets like Queen, King, and College, because they have streetcars on them. Use Richmond, Adelaide, etc. .

3. If you're staying in a downtown hotel, ride the TTC everywhere. If you get on the subway, I think it's 5 tokens or tickets for $9.00, or cash fare $2.25 a ride. Get the TOKENS. If you find yourself at the Union Station subway you'll be glad you did. The lineups can be a mess, with tokens you can go through the turnstiles yourself.

4. Crosswalks: If crossing one, press the button and wait for the cars to stop. If driving, don't drive through a flashing crosswalk.

5. Transfers: Most bus connections to subway stations don't require a transfer, since the buses come into a self-contained stations. Exceptions include stations like Jane, High Park, Dufferin and a few others. Most others allow you to transfer automatically. If in doubt grab one from a machine anyway or get one off the bus driver or streetcar driver when you pay your fare.

6. Sightseeing idea: Take the 501 (Queen) westbound streetcar from Queen and Yonge, Bay or University. (the destination will say Long Branch). You'll go through a lot of interesting neighbourhoods, from the trendiness of Queen West to the more earthy tones of Parkdale.

Past Parkdale, you go past High Park and towards the Humber Loop. If it's warm get off at High Park, or go past the Loop to Parklawn, where you can walk down to a nice new waterfront park where you can get the best views of Toronto from.

You can walk along the waterfront for several kilometres. Cross the Lakeshore at the intersections of Windermere, Ellis or Colborne Lodge to get back to the Queensway and the 501 streetcar going east. It will say Neville Park, Cowell or Connaught, all of which are well east of downtown.
