Emerge Magazine 2017

Urban vs Rural

What things motivate young people to move to small towns far from the cities in which they grew up or attended university? On the other hand, what motivates them to stay in cities like Toronto?

Either way, the place you love after graduating means making a hard choice about whether or not it’s worth what it takes to continue living in Canada’s largest cities.

Emerge photographer and Instazine editor-in-chief Danielle Tocher travelled to downtown Toronto, and from there to five different locations in rural Ontario, to document and create an image that captures one of the biggest issues facing Emerge editors and readers.
