<- Back to Toronto Neighbourhoods

West Toronto is home to a large immigrant population, making its neighbourhoods very unique. It is bounded by Dufferin Street to the east, St. Clair Avenue to the north, the Humber River to the west, and Lake Ontario to the south. This area is growing and has undergone gentrification. West Toronto is home to Little Italy, Little Portugal, and Roncesvalles Village, the city’s Polish community. Young professionals are attracted to its nightlife, restaurants and close proximity to downtown. This area boasts Toronto’s expansive High Park with its tree-lined streets and late 1800s homes. West Toronto is also home to hip Queen West, full of lofts that attract artists and musicians. North of High Park is The Junction, a residential area popular amongst young families, characterized by quaint shops and older homes.
