North Toronto

Incorporated in 1890 and annexed from the City of Toronto in 1912 , when the expanded Toronto Mega City was formed in 1998 the North Toronto neighbourhood went from being located at the north end of the old city to occupying a central location within the new city boundaries. Despite these changes North Toronto’s identity as a neighbourhood endures.

North Toronto is especially popular with families raising school-age children. It has everything families are looking for in a neighbourhood including good size houses, an excellent selection of public, private and separate schools, convenient access to Toronto’s transit system, and a multitude of parks and recreational facilities.

North Toronto or Uptown Toronto has become a large, eclectic area with busy pockets like Yonge-Eglinton, a midtown intersection with condo buildings, office towers, and an indoor mall. Farther north, green spaces surround Burke Brook, including Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens, are a popular photo spot with ornamental flowerbeds. A range of quaint restaurants, from diners to stylish Italian spots, line the area’s major streets and add to the ambiance of this area.

Lifestyle:  North Toronto residents patronize the local shops and restaurants on Yonge Street, between Eglinton and Lawrence Avenues. The Yonge and Eglinton corridor has been coined ‘Young and Eligible’ due to the many bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and movie theatres, that proliferate at this intersection.

The mix of stores on Yonge Street is very diverse, ranging from mom and pop owner-operated stores, to international chain stores; that have added a certain luster to the entire area.

Indoor shopping is available nearby at the Yonge and Eglinton Centre, which have recently undergone a major renovation and expansion.
