What do you know of in Toronto? Steam Whistle is the big microbrewery up there, and Mill Street is another notable one, that has even had an American presence in the past couple of years, but I am unaware of newer places, and eventually would like to try some of them out.
There are a million craft brew places now in Toronto. Here are some good ones:

Shame about the old hockey rink.

Maybe it's because it's an Indian word?
I've always heard it means "Shining waters" but looked it up to verify:

"The name was first applied to the lake (1641) and is traceable to Amerindian sources. It may be a corruption of Onitariio, meaning "beautiful lake", or Kanadario, variously translated as "sparkling" or "beautiful" water. Later European settlers gave the name to the land along the lakeshore and then to an ever extending area."
