The name “Toronto” is actually from the Mohawk word “tkaronto.” When translated into English it means the place where trees stand in water. Toronto originally referred to an area where Native Americans put stakes into thewater for fishing.

The first Europeans arrived in the area in the early 1600s from France. It was later colonized by the British and was attacked by US forces twice during the War of 1812. AS time passed Toronto became more involved in thetrade. This resulted in expanded markets. It was established as the city of York in 1793. Several decades later it was then incorporated as the city of Toronto in 1834. It became the City of Toronto in 1998.
