The Shape of Water Entirely Shot in Ontario
Do you recognize the place? Yes, it's filmed nowhere else but in the exterior of famous Massey Hall in Toronto! Guillmero Del Toro's The Shape of Water (2017) brings back a distinctly retro feeling to Toronto, and some Oscar buzz with it. The film itself leaves a little to be desired and can easily be seen as yet another riff on the "Beauty and the Beast" motif. While the special effects, costumes, and set design were all worthy of awards, the true strength of The Shape of Water is in this very simple and obvious message of the beauty of love without prejudice. Look at all the Toronto movie locations and read more about the film on our blog.

Good News from Toronto Real Estate Market in June!
Finally, June brings some positive news from the world of housing market in Toronto. Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported up 2.4 per cent number of sales compared to the low June 2017 result. Sales were also up 17.6 per cent on a monthly basis between May 2018 and June 2018. Toronto Real Estate Board President Garry Bhaura says that home ownership has proven to be a positive long-term investment. After some adjustment to the Fair Housing Plan, the new Office of The Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) stress test requirement and generally higher borrowing costs, home buyers are starting to move back into the market, with sales trending up from last year's lows.
