  Greater Toronto Area - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Greater Toronto Area (called the GTA by local residents) is the largest metropolitan area in Canada.
The Greater Toronto Area is the fifth-largest metropolitan region in North America, behind those surrounding Mexico City, New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago, although one should use care in comparing statistics of metropolitan census regions from different countries which may be based on different boundary systems and definitions of terms.
As an economic area, the GTA consists of 25 municipalities and four regions in a total area of over 7,000 square kilometres with a population of 5.6 million.
