Living in a city where around one in every two people are immigrants, the British in Toronto are tracing a route taken by their ancestors of times past. British settlers flocked to what was then the Town of York in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
Contemporary, multicultural Toronto has the highest per capita immigration rate in the world. And yet, the city remains inherently anglophile. With a shared language and businesslike character, the British in Toronto can feel comfortable.
