Eating properly is very important. Poor eating habits can leave you unable to focus on your studies, or worse, sick/ill. "Canadian food" is not spicy and can be very different from what you are accustomed to eating at home. Learning some basic cooking skills before you leave home is a good idea. Fortunately, the campus is surrounded by many international grocery stores and restaurants. Eating all your meals from a restaurant can become quite expensive and you will want/need to cook for yourself.
If you take a walk or bus ride, you will be amazed at the number of oriental grocery stores, herbal shops, bakeries, restaurants and clothing stores. Most are either within 10 minutes of campus.
Large grocery stores are less expensive than convenience stores and offer a greater variety of products and produce. The closest grocery store to campus is Wal-Mart, Freshco which is conveniently located in Scarborough Town Centre Mall . It is a 15-minute walk from campus . After shopping, you may want to take a taxi back home. There are a number of large and small stores in the area around where you can purchase clothes, shoes, and other household needs. Food Basics and Canadian Tire would be the largest stores, and a good place to start looking for household items.
Looking to do some grocery (food, vegetables, milk, juices, fruits, etc.) – or household utilities (detergents, toiletries, cleaners, bed sheets, etc.) shopping here are some stores which you can go to!
Another best store to shop small items is the DOLLAR TREE or DOLLARAMA!
