FF Toronto currently has 40 active members. We have hosted FF clubs from Australia, Japan, the United States, Germany, Latvia, Belgium, and Canada. FF Toronto has journeyed to FF clubs in the United States, Japan, Russia, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. In 2017, we hosted the Conference of FF Ontario (Canada) Clubs.
Toronto is Canada’s largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a highly diverse population. More than 180 languages and dialects are spoken in the city. Located on the shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto is a dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, all overshadowed by the iconic, free-standing CN Tower. Toronto has beautiful green spaces such as the Toronto Islands, High Park, the expansive waterfront, and walking trails through ravines and leafy neighborhoods. Our downtown is home to over 250,00 residents who enjoy the vibrant, active lifestyle it offers.
Toronto Pearson International Airport is connected to downtown Union Station by the UP Express train. The 25-minute trip costs $12.40 CA for a return ticket. Our most popular activities are the CN Tower, the Toronto Islands, the St. Lawrence Market, Crawford Lake, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto Symphony, the Bata Shoe Museum, Ripley’s Aquarium, McMichael Gallery, the Distillery District and Black Creek Pioneer Village. We have a Welcome Party, an evening of dinner hosting, and a Farewell Party.
Our urban setting requires the use of subway, buses and streetcars. Many members do not own a vehicle. Ambassadors must be comfortable climbing stairs, walking several kilometers most days and navigating crowded sidewalks and timed crosswalks. It’s not quite New York but it is busy!
The cost of the program varies according to the choices made but is approximately $200 US. Theatre (e.g., Come From Away) is additional. Niagara Falls is about 2 hours away and can be visited using a tour company (additional cost).
