Canada’s second-largest city is renowned for great food, historic neighborhoods, and a vibrant and varied urban life driven in part by stubbornly cheap rent. It’s also wedged into a sweet corner of the continent for outdoor adventure: Vermont, New Hampshire and upstate New York are all on its doorstep. But before you dip south of the border, give these made-in-Canada adventures a whirl.
