For reprojection, here are some important notes: For the most accurate datum transformation, use the NTv2 grid shift files distributed by NRCan (they are included with some commercial software packages such as FME and the Data Interoperabilty Extension in ArcToolboxes. As well, you cannot perform a transformation directly from NAD27 to WGS84, you need to go to NAD83 first. --> from S.W. City of Toronto's Geospatial Competency Centre. Land use can be found in the Municipal Address Points layer.
