Depends entirely on you and your usage. I have friends that have kept their Toronto numbers while others have switched to a Hamilton number.
Something else to consider is if you have to pay to change your number or if you can only change it once per year (and have to pay to change it more often).
You should also consider that when you switch numbers you'll lose your previous number and it'll be up for grabs by others. So when you want to switch back it may not be available anymore. It may be inconvenient for your contacts.
