About the port

The Port of Toronto, one of Canada's largest major inland ports, is situated on the northwest shore of Lake Ontario. Its location at the doorstep of downtown Toronto provides access to 25 per cent of Canada’s population and is no more than 1300 km from many of North America’s largest cities.
