The following list comprises the top 10 most-visited cities in Canada (Source: Statistics Canada, International Travel Survey, 2007)

Often mistaken for the nation's capital (which is actually Ottawa), Toronto is probably the best known Canadian city, in large part due to the Toronto International Film Festival, the CN Tower and major sports franchises, including the Blue Jays, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Raptors. Toronto is less than two hours from both the U.S. border and Niagara Falls and within two to three hours of magnificent cottage country and provincial parks.

Vancouver – where the ocean meets the mountains. Aside from spectacular natural beauty, Vancouver has a laid-back charm that makes it one of the most popular Canadian cities to visit.

Millions of people saw the allure of Vancouver both first hand and on the screens of their TVs in 2010 when the city hosted the Winter Olympic Games. Many of the events took place in Whistler, one of the world's premier ski destinations, but also a year-round visitor draw.

Although the main draw to Niagara Falls, Canada, is to view the two waterfalls, the surrounding area has much more to offer. The Niagara wine region and the Shaw Festival are just two more reasons to visit.

Niagara Falls is probably best known as a honeymoon destination, attracting millions of newlywed or just plain romantic couples each year. In recent years, the area has become more sophisticated - in large part due to a new Casino that ushered in other fine dining and hotels.

Quebec City’s Old Town itself is a work of art: cobblestone walkways, well-preserved 17th century architecture, café culture and the only North American fortress walls that still exist north of Mexico - all of which has given it status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. French is still the prevalent language spoken is Quebec and can't help but add a certain allure to this already alluring town.

The capital city of British Columbia is located on Vancouver Island (an island that is confusingly not home to the city of Vancouver). Victoria is a charming harbour city that is a gateway to all the wonderful towns, inlets, coves and Pacific Ocean scenery that is Vancouver Island.

7. Calgary

The Calgary Stampede put Calgary on the map and the city's role as host of the 1988 Winter Olympics solidified its place as one of Canada's top destinations. The Old West spirit is alive and well in Calgary where cowboy hats and line dancing are always in fashion. The city has enjoyed great prosperity since the 1990s and grown significantly. Calgary's proximity to Banff and other ski hills, icefields and other grand scenery is a big part of Calgary's draw.
