- Story : When Europeans came to Toronto, they found an Iroquois village known as Teiaiagon on the Humber River. But then the Mississaugas, which is a part of the Ojibwa, moved into the area leading the Iroquois to flee and live along the north of the lake. After the Independence war in America, Toronto’s land was bought from the Mississaugas. In 1793 John Graves Simcoe moved upper Canada’s capital to Toronto, and he named it York because he did not want an aboriginal name. Throughout the last glacial period, Toronto was under the ice in 13,000 BCE. The very first human settlers came to Toronto around 8500 to 9000 BCE.
