Cosmopolis Toronto: The World in One City

Water is life

Toronto’s waters are a familiar sight for many newcomers to the city. Cleansing, purifying and transformative, water is a life force that connects us to our past and our future. Whether we’re walking along the shores of Lake Ontario or sitting by the banks of a river, pond or stream, the sights and sounds of water take on symbolic and even spiritual value. Dive in and explore the stories of these 13 Torontonians.
