Crowds packed the route and the square outside City Hall where the march is to end in the afternoon. Fans, many skipping school and work, filled the streets and subways as early as 7 a.m.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is to attend briefly. Mayor John Tory declared Monday "We The North Day" in Toronto, after the NBA champions' slogan.
