Built in 1976 to showcase Canada’s engineering might, Toronto’s 553-metre CN Tower still proudly ranks as the Tallest Structure in Canada.
The CN Tower, located in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is a communications and tourist tower standing 553.33 metres (1,815.39 ft) tall. It surpassed the height of the Ostankino Tower while still under construction in 1975, becoming the tallest free-standing structure on land in the world. On September 12, 2007, after holding the record for 32 years, the CN tower was surpassed in height by the still-under-construction Burj Dubai. It remains the signature icon of Toronto, attracting more than two million international visitors annually.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CN_Tower
