I could get my brother and sister-in-law (Toronto born and bred Taiwanese-Canadian) to give some good recommendations. Most of the stuff is well away from the city center, though there are some decent places there. Really, the best food is in restaurants surrounding those huge, Chinese, cash only, malls, north of Toronto proper. If there is one thing that Chinese like to do as much as eating, it's shopping. There is also a snack stand on ever "block" of those malls, just in case you get hungry walking between "stores" selling fake Affliction tees.
Really though, just ask any Cantonese person who doesn't live in Chinatown (so, the more affluent Chinese) and they will be able to tell you half a dozen of their favorite places. Everyone will have a different list; and usually, unless it's a very slow Chinese person, most of the recommendations will be at least quite passable.
