Toronto’s Harbourfront neighbourhood is an upscale community with a picturesque view of Lake Ontario and the Toronto Islands. Residents and visitors enjoy many fine cultural, recreational, shopping and dining opportunities.

Enjoy award-winning architecture as you explore the elegant shops in the Queen’s Quay Terminal. The spacious building is filled with natural light pouring in from towering ceilings. Its unique design is reflected in the one-of-a-kind gifts, fashions, home accessories and toys found within the stores.

A stone’s throw from the Terminal, you’ll find Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre. This arts and culture hub assists over 450 groups in bringing their artistic visions to the public. The 10-acre site houses studios, theatres, galleries, markets and more. Watch as glass blowers shape their molten material at the Craft Studio. Dance troupes have their own stage at the Premiere Dance Theatre. And The Power Plant is Toronto’s foremost showcase for contemporary arts. As a whole, the centre strives to bring people the magic of an internationally-inspired creative spirit.
