The Torontoist is your nerdy little sister. It explains the city. It shapes ideas and forms opinions on the issues that matter in Toronto. It informs and engages the reader with unique takes on the inside stories uncovering urbanism.

Torontoist‘s goal is to capture the tenor and texture of life in Toronto, to evoke the daily experience of the city in words and images. This includes, especially, the physical shape of the city as it grows and changes, the political and civic developments that provide it with direction, the culture that animates its public spaces, and the history that got it to this point. We try always to be faithful in our rendering of Toronto, and to be fearless in advocating for what we think might make it better.
