The view across the lake from Ontario Place at dusk to the skyline of Toronto, as seen here, contains the world famous CN Tower, which is a communications structure standing at about 553 metres. It was at one time the tallest free-standing structure in the world and held that record for 31 years. It still remains however, the tallest free-standing structure in the Americas. More than two million people visit the tower every year.
Toronto has over 2.5 million residents and continues to grow. It is officially Canada's economic capital as it holds the finance and the business district, and the Toronto Stock Exchange. The city, founded around 1750, most likely got its name from the Iroquois word takaronto, meaning 'trees that stand in water' as it used to be a bog of lakes, mud and trees - not the bustling city with the impressive skyline seen today.
