CN Tower

CN Tower

Standing 533 metres tall and towering above the rest of Toronto’s skyline, the CN Tower is a historical and cultural icon of the city and country. Considered one of the world's great engineering feats, this tower was the tallest structure in the world for over 30 years, from 1975 until 2007.

A top family attraction, you’ll enjoy seeing panoramic city views from the high vantage point of the SkyPod or the dining windows in the tower’s 360 Restaurant. If you’re the adventurous type, try walking along the tower’s outdoor ledge with the CN Tower EdgeWalk.

Interesting facts about the CN Tower

The “CN” in CN Tower stands for Canadian National, the railway company that built the tower between 1973 and 1976. From the tower, viewers can see as far as Niagara Falls on a clear day.

In addition to being a tourist spot, the CN Tower is the centre of telecommunications for the southern Ontario region, serving more than 17 Canadian television and FM radio stations. It provides much-needed cell signal to millions of people in the city of Toronto and the surrounding Greater Toronto Area.

A time capsule is embedded in the tower’s walls and will be opened on its 100th birthday in 2076.
