It’s no secret that Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. Its array of ethnic backgrounds, foods and languages bridge the city’s communities together. Another link between its diverse demographic, which is rarely discussed in the mainstream media, is Toronto slang.

6lang uncovers the origins of Toronto slang, how it’s used among different communities, and the influences slang has on the city’s culture. Listen as Toronto’s unique speech is dissected through in-depth interviews with people who study and speak Toronto slang.
