Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Summers are hot and humid (mostly), but the weather can change suddenly to cool and crisp even in June or July, so always bring a sweater or light jacket.
In winter the weather is cold, but generally we don't get too much snow. Toronto is also pretty windy (especially downtown and near the lake) so always bundle up in winter!
There really isn't a spring or fall here, it just seems that one day you wake up and it is all of a sudden warm or cold again. But for the possibly one or two weeks that we do have the change over it usually rains a lot.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can get it all here if you need to...its a big city.
Photo Equipment: You can get it all at Henry's Camera, 119 Church St. In fact, you can even sell it there too!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you go camping up north, which I do recommend, don't go in June, because we have the tiny flies that cause bites about 5 times as bad as mosquitos. If you go any other time of the summer bring insect repellant to ward off hungry mosquitos. It is even a good idea to use it in the suburbs if you are siting outside at night.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Toronto can get very cold in the winter, but the summers here can also get very hot and humid.
If you'll be here in the winter, snow boots are a must, and a warm parka is also the best protection against the cold weather.
Summers days can range from rather cool (around 20c) to very hot (around 30c). Lately, I find that the weather seems to be getting more and more humid, and on hot days like these, there are often smog alerts.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Any medical supplies can be purchased at a local pharmacy.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Recently, a few beaches in Toronto have received the International Blue Flag. So, if you are a beach bum, don't forget your towels and swimsuits!

Luggage and bags: it was only 4 days and i got two-three pairs of trousers, shirts, shorts, t-shirts and some other stuff which all travellers know. It was summer time and the best season of Toronto...that's why i didn't need to take any coats with me but you'd better be taking a sweater or something like that because at night it gets a little cooler. As my friends told me, the winters are terrible and very cold. If you're brave enough to go to Toronto in winter time, you'd better be prepared seriously unless you want to freeze.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: some clubs/bars do not allow jeans and sneakers. So...just for your information.
Photo Equipment: of course!!!

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: From the end of dec through to March bring as many clothes as possible as it get freezing -20 to -30 is not uncommon + you have the wind chill on top of that. If you don't have the right gear forget about going outside for long periods.

Luggage and bags: Security would not be the number one priority I would worry about, & just be travel smart when choosing your bags. There is no need to wear your bag in front, tuck your purse really tight to you....
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Toronto, like the rest of Canada, is famous for those cold, windy winters, so make sure you bring enough clothes, jackets, scarfs & hats to bear the burden. Treat it like you were heading to a ski resort in the Alps or the Rockies.
Spring and Autumn are not warm all the time, so make sure you bring enough sweaters and shirts in case the warm weather is still hibernating with the bears.
Summer in Toronto is very comfortable, though in some years it has dropped to 10-15 degrees. Bring loose clothing, t-shirts, shorts, etc...
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: The humidity is somewhat low in Canada & Toronto in general, so bring lotion if you have sensitive skin.
If you are like me, you would also need lip balm, or the blisters will hurt.
Photo Equipment: Toronto is not photogenic like Vancouver or Banff, but there is plenty of sunshine to keep your pictures bright & happy = )
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Like every other place on earth, sunscreen is important for healthy looking skin!
You must bring mosquito repellant, for there is a fear that the West Nile Virus might spread again. Though it is not as contagious here as it has been in the US, situations could change.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Jeans, khakis, slacks are good. Nights are generally very cool, so shorts and skirts are not recommended. Wind breaker/spring jacket that you can wear a fleece/sweatshirt/sweater undernearth for those cool days.
Cloth shoes and sandals are generally not a good idea because of the rain. Best to wear leather shoes, casual boots, or running shoes with leather trimming.
Umbrella is a must, but many can be bought from street vendors and in malls.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Bug repellant if going into the bush.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Hefty leather shoes or boots. Extra socks in case some get wet. Scarves not necessary, but ladies may want to use one depending on attire. Gloves is a must. Hats are good to pack, but may not be used.
Toronto winters are generally slushy and wet. So particular attention should be paid to your pants, shoes, and socks.
