Setting the stage for the Toronto skyline, the CN Tower is Canada’s most recognizable and celebrated icon. At a height of 553.33m (1,815 feet, 5 inches), it is Canada’s National Tower, the World’s Tallest Building, an important telecommunications hub, and the centre of tourism in Toronto.
Each year, approximately 2 million people from canada and travelers from around the world visit the CN Tower to take in the breath-taking view and enjoy all the attractions it has to offer.
The CN Tower was built in 1976 by Canadian National (CN) who wanted to demonstrate the strength of Canadian industry by building a tower taller than any other in the world. In 1995, the CN Tower became a public company and ownership of the Tower was transferred to Canada Lands (CLC) Company, a federal Crown corporation responsible for real estate development.
