So I am planning a business trip behind the Maple Curtain, and since I'll have some non-meeting time was wondering what I should do.

If you are into arts, AGO is a great place, and they offer free admission on Tuesday after 6pm, I think. ROM, on the other hand, is mostly for kids, with their dinosaurs' and animals' exhibit
You should visit Church street - the gay district - while you are there. Byzantium is great for their drinks menu, and the food there is delicious as well, though a tad expensive. Woody's is everyone's favourite bar; on Thursday, they have the Best Chest competition; and on Friday and Saturday, they have the best ass competition, which is always fun to watch.
If the weather allows, pack your swimming suit and visit Toronto Island - Hanlan's Point. The optional clothing beach there is always fun, and you can see the skyline of Toronto while heading to the Toronto Island on a ferry boat; it's a great opportunity to take a lot of pretty photos!
If you are into architecture, another great place to visit is the St. Lawrence Market and the Distillery District. They have a lot of interesting shops there, and the buildings around those areas are fun to look at.

kevjo saidQueen West has some great places to eat.
MarSquared saidYelp is pretty good but also check out foursquare for tips.
I don't know your food sensitivities, but here's my list of the don't miss foods in the city:
Sandwiches is Black Camel (http://blackcamel.ca/about.htm 4 Crescent Rd near Rosedale Subway Station);
Pho is Pho Hung (http://phohung.ca/ 350 Spadina Ave in Chinatown);
Korean-Viet fusion is Banh Mi Boys (Spadina & Queen, NW corner);
Modern Korean is Swish (Wellington & Leader)
Modern Chinese is Lee (King & Portland)
First Nations is Keriwa (Queen, Queensway & King)
Indian is Amaya (Bayview & Eglinton) <- note other locations don't have the best chef
Sushi is Solo Sushi Bekkan (Yonge & Grosvenor)
There are so many good restaurants in Toronto; but it does depend on your price range and most of the places I've mentioned above have staff with really good knowledge about what's in the food (except for Pho Hung, but how wrong can you go with rice noodles, vegetables and meats in soup).
