I have found this.
Ontario Provincial Highways Traffic Volumes On Demand
http://www.raqsa.mto.gov.on.ca/techp...umes.nsf/tvweb


They have the AADT of all proviencial highway in 2016.
The highest figure is the 401 with 416,500 between highway 400 and Weston Road in North York.

There is an other highway with a section above 400,000 in Toronto.
The 427 between Burnhamthorpe road and Rathburn road in Etobicoke with 400,700.

Looking more detailled figures, I was suprised to see that Toronto has higher figures in summer than in winter (it's maybe I'm Parisian, a city that empties out in summer) and that data including weekends have HIGHER figures than the average data excluding weekends.

Exemple for highway 401 busiest section.

-AADT : Annual Average Daily Traffic; defined as the average twenty four
hour, two way traffic for the period January 1st to December 31st.
416,500

-SADT : Summer Average Daily Traffic; defined as the average twenty four
hour, two way traffic for the period July 1st to August 31st including
weekends.
458,100

-SAWDT : Summer Average Weekday Traffic; defined as the average twenty
four hour, two way traffic for the period July 1st to August 31st,
excluding weekends.
445,600

-WADT : Winter Average Daily Traffic; defined as the average twenty four
hour, two way traffic for the period January 1st to March 31st, plus
December 1st to December 31st, including weekends.
374,800
