Sitting just a half-hour drive from Toronto, the city of Vaughan offers a quieter alternative to its noisy neighbor. A strong sense of multiculturalism can be felt in the city, with Italian and Russian influences dating back to waves of migration after the second world war. Religion also plays a strong part in the city's fabric; Vaughan has the highest practicing religion rates of anywhere in Ontario. The city of nearly 300,000 people was long notable for being the largest metropolis in Canada without a hospital within its city limits, although plans to build a hospital complex are on schedule. Plan your trip to Vaughan and other Canada destinations using our handy Canada day trip tool.
