Etobicoke
Etobicoke
/ɛˈtoʊbɪkoʊ/ ( listen) (with a silent 'ke') is an administrative district and former city that makes up the western part of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Etobicoke
Etobicoke
was first settled by Europeans in the 1790s; the municipality grew into city status in the 20th century. Several independent villages and towns developed within the area of Etobicoke, only to be absorbed later into Etobicoke during the era of Metro Toronto. Etobicoke
Etobicoke
was dissolved in 1998, when it was amalgamated with other Metro Toronto
Toronto
municipalities into the City of Toronto. Etobicoke
Etobicoke
is bordered on the south by Lake Ontario, on the east by the Humber River, on the west by Etobicoke
Etobicoke
Creek, the city of Mississauga, and Toronto
Toronto
Pearson International Airport (a small portion of the airport extends into Etobicoke), and on the north by Steeles Avenue
Steeles Avenue
West. Etobicoke's population (365,143 in 2016) is very diverse, with people from all over the world including Afro-Eurasians (Europeans, South Asians, East Asians, Middle Easterners and Africans) and West Indians. Etobicoke
Etobicoke
is primarily suburban in development, with a lower population density than the other districts of Toronto, larger main streets, shopping malls, and cul-de-sac housing developments. Etobicoke

History[edit] Different groups of First Nations peoples used the land that is now Etobicoke
Etobicoke
at different times. As the Algonquins gradually moved west from the Atlantic to Lake Erie, it is almost certain that they would have occupied this land at some point. By the time they were mostly settled on the shores of Georgian Bay, the Huron-Wendat were the primary residents of the north shore of Lake Ontario. During the 17th century they were pushed out by the powerful Haudenosaunee
Haudenosaunee
(Iroquois) confederacy, made up of nations based to the south of the lake. After continued harassment from the Iroquois
Iroquois
to the south, a coalition of the Ojibway, Odawa, and Potawatomi
Potawatomi
Algonquin nations, known as the Three Fires, gradually pushed the Haudenosaunee
Haudenosaunee
off this land. The Algonquian-speaking Mississauga
Mississauga
settled here by 1695, fishing and growing crops more locally in the summer and hunting farther afield in the winter.[2] The name "Etobicoke" was derived from the Mississauga
Mississauga
word wah-do-be-kang (wadoopikaang),[3] meaning "place where the alders grow." This was the way they described the area between Etobicoke Creek and the Humber River. The first provincial land surveyor, Augustus Jones, also spelled it as "ato-be-coake." Etobicoke
Etobicoke
was finally adopted as the official name in 1795 at the direction of Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe.[4] The British officials intended Etobicoke
Etobicoke
to be included in the Toronto Purchase of 1787.[4] However, the Mississauga
Mississauga
and government disagreed as to whether the western boundary of the purchase was the Humber River or the Etobicoke
Etobicoke
River (now, Etobicoke
Etobicoke
Creek). The Mississauga Indians allowed British surveyor Alexander Aitkin to survey the disputed land, and the British paid an additional 10 shillings for the purchase, although the purchase was never formally agreed to. The dispute was eventually settled between the Government of Canada
Canada
and the Mississauga
Mississauga
First Nation in 2010.[5] Immigrants from the British Isles were among the new settlers, as well as Loyalists who had left the rebellious Thirteen Colonies, by then the new United States. Early settlers included many of the Queen's Rangers, who were given land in the area by Simcoe to help protect the new capital of Upper Canada
Canada
and to develop this frontier area. In 1793-95, the Honourable Samuel Smith, a colonel in the Queen's Rangers, received land grants of 1,530 acres (6.2 km2), extending from today's Kipling Avenue
Kipling Avenue
to Etobicoke
Etobicoke
Creek, and north to Bloor Street.[6] The first land patent was issued to Sergeant Patrick Mealey on March 18, 1797, for a plot on the west side of Royal York Road
Royal York Road
on Lake Ontario.[7] This was part of the First Military Tract, or "Militia Lands", which extended from today's Royal York Road
Royal York Road
to Kipling Avenue, south from Bloor Street. The Crown was providing land to Loyalists in compensation for property they left behind in the US and to veterans of the American Revolution in payment for service. In other parts of Ontario, the Crown granted land to the Iroquoian First Nations who had served as allies during the war and were forced to cede most of their land in New York to the state. The Crown granted more land to the members of the Queen's Rangers
Queen's Rangers
in the First Military tract, but most Rangers did not occupy their land. Many sold their acreage to others after a short time. The census of 1805 counted 84 people in the township of Etobicoke. In 1806, William Cooper built a grist mill and saw mill on the west bank of the Humber river, just south of Dundas Street. The 1809 census counted 137 residents.[4] The Dundas Street bridge opened in 1816, making the township more accessible.[citation needed] On May 18, 1846, the Albion Road Company was incorporated. Its purpose was to build and maintain a road to the north-west corner of Etobicoke, where a new community was planned. At the same time, John Grubb, who had already founded Thistletown, hired land surveyor John Stoughton Dennis to plan a community at the intersection of Islington Avenue and Albion Road, to be named Saint Andrew's. Plan 6 for this community was registered on October 15, 1847. The French master of Upper Canada
Canada
College, Jean du Petit Pont de la Haye, contracted land surveyor James McCallum Jr to create a plan for the community planned by the Albion Road Company, and Plan 28 was registered for Claireville on October 12, 1849.[7]

Etobicoke
Etobicoke
township in 1878

The township of Etobicoke
Etobicoke
was incorporated on January 1, 1850.[8] The first meeting of the town council was held on January 21. Present at the meeting were reeve William Gamble, vice-reeve W. B. Wadsworth and aldermen Moses Appleby, Thomas Fisher, and John Geddes.[9] The council convened monthly meetings at a variety of places. In 1850, the population of the township was 2904.[citation needed] By 1881, the population of Etobicoke
Etobicoke
township was 2976.[9] In 1911, the community of Mimico
Mimico
was incorporated on land taken from Etobicoke
Etobicoke
township.[10] New Toronto
Toronto
was incorporated on January 1, 1913.[4] Early on, there was talk of merging Mimico
Mimico
and New Toronto. A 1916 referendum on amalgamating the two communities was approved by the residents of Mimico, but rejected by residents of New Toronto.[6] In 1917, Mimico
Mimico
became a town and in 1920, New Toronto
Toronto
became the Town of New Toronto. Long Branch was incorporated in 1930 as a village.[11] In 1954, Etobicoke
Etobicoke
Township became a part of the newly formed regional government, the Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto
Toronto
("Metro"). In 1967, the township of Etobicoke
Etobicoke
was merged with three small lakeside municipalities — the Village of Long Branch, the Town of New Toronto, and the Town of Mimico — to form the Borough of Etobicoke. The borough was reincorporated as a city in 1984.[8] In 1998, six local municipalities (including Etobicoke) and the Metropolitan Toronto
Toronto
government merged to form the amalgamated city of Toronto.[12] Character[edit] Etobicoke
Etobicoke
has the lowest population density of the former cities and boroughs that currently make up the city of Toronto. This is mainly due to its expanses of industrial lands along the various expressways. The residential areas consist primarily of single-family dwellings, although several large multi-storey high-rise condominium developments have been built in south Etobicoke
Etobicoke
near the Humber River over the past few years. The central areas of Etobicoke
Etobicoke
are generally middle class. The central and northern areas of Etobicoke
Etobicoke
contain numerous high-density apartment complexes set in the middle of sizable, open fields and parks. The central/southern areas of Etobicoke, such as Markland Wood, The Kingsway, New Toronto, Mimico
Mimico
and Long Branch, consist of large green spaces, numerous parks, and main street shopping areas. The Kingsway neighbourhood has attracted many affluent individuals and families (as of 2001, over 50% of households have an income in excess of C$100,000/year).[13] Etobicoke
Etobicoke
has numerous public parks. Notable among them is James Gardens on the banks of the Humber River. The park includes seasonal flowers, walkways, a rock garden, streams, and waterfalls. It is a very popular site for taking wedding photographs. Also located in Etobicoke
Etobicoke
are Centennial Park, a large recreational park and Colonel Samuel Smith Park and Humber Bay Park
Humber Bay Park
on the lakeshore. Etobicoke
Etobicoke
has numerous golf courses including St. George's Golf and Country Club, which in 2007 was ranked as one of the three best golf courses in Canada.[14] Neighbourhoods[edit] Etobicoke
Etobicoke
is generally divided into three large areas that roughly correspond to the three political ridings. Each consists of neighbourhoods, mostly developments of 19th-century 'postal villages' (rural neighbourhoods), that were built at important points along the early roads and railways; especially the three former 'Lakeshore Municipalities' that separated from Etobicoke
Etobicoke
in the early 20th century and Etobicoke's central Islington community: The Lakeshore (Etobicoke—Lakeshore), along the north shore of Lake Ontario
Ontario
and the 'Lake Shore Road' (now Lake Shore Boulevard West), comprises three former municipalities that were the first in Etobicoke to urbanize and became separate municipalities during the first half of the 20th century: Mimico, New Toronto
Toronto
and Long Branch, and related communities that were never separate from the Township of Etobicoke; namely, Alderwood (originally a suburb of New Toronto), and Humber Bay (a historic gateway community connecting to Toronto) which was originally sprawl from the east side of the Humber River that was subsequently split by the construction of Ontario's first motor vehicle 'freeway' in 1938, which cuts across the top of southern Etobicoke; (the Queen Elizabeth Way). The original remnant residential (northern) section of Humber Bay
Humber Bay
today is located north of The Queensway, east of Mimico
Mimico
Creek to the Humber River. The commercial, southern section of Humber Bay
Humber Bay
today retains only Christie's Biscuits bakery, as high-rise condominium towers and clustered row housing have forced out virtually all other commercial/industrial employment uses. In the late 1990s, the former McGuiness Whiskey factory was converted into a high-rise loft condominium which became the centrepiece of the Mystic Pointe development. Etobicoke's first railway opened through the area in 1855, just north of the Lake Ontario
Ontario
shoreline, leading to the first period of growth as it replaced Dundas Street in Central Etobicoke
Etobicoke
as the main means of transportation and the industrial centre along its right-of-way. Central Etobicoke
Etobicoke
( Etobicoke
Etobicoke
Centre); the oldest communities in Etobicoke
Etobicoke
developed along the first street, Dundas Street, in the south of this area, which crosses the width of Etobicoke
Etobicoke
on the escarpment formed by the ancient shoreline of Lake Iroquois. This area centres around the Islington community, the former administrative centre of Etobicoke
Etobicoke
and later Etobicoke's 'downtown' which is near the central 'Six Points' intersection at its western boundary. The rural Richview community developed directly to the north of Islington in the 19th century on Eglinton Ave. (formerly Richview Rd.), as did the gateway Humber Heights communities (connecting to Toronto): Westmount and Humbervale, to the east on Eglinton. Development of the until-then largely undeveloped eastern part of central Etobicoke
Etobicoke
(originally a forest reserved for the use of government mills as "The King's Mill Reserve"; 'Kingsmill'), the 'Humber Valley', was largely the work of Robert Home Smith starting about 1900 and including the communities of the Kingsway and Edenbridge. As Etobicoke
Etobicoke
developed in the post-war years, low-density residential areas filled in most of the rural areas between the old communities including Princess-Rosethorn
Princess-Rosethorn
and Eringate – Centennial – West Deane as well as the older Eatonville community to the west of Islington. Central Etobicoke
Etobicoke
includes Etobicoke's most exclusive neighbourhoods, with fine housing stock and many large treed properties. Along the East and West Mall parallel to Highway 427 exists a mix of hi-rise rentals, townhouses and post-war bungalows. Markland Wood
Markland Wood
is the farthest western community within Etobicoke/Toronto; situated along Bloor Street
Bloor Street
West, it is predominately single family housing with some mixed hi-rise rentals. North Etobicoke; The 19th-century Etobicoke
Etobicoke
communities are Clairville, Highfield, Rexdale, Smithfield, Thistletown
Thistletown
which grew along two formerly private roads (now Albion Rd. and Rexdale
Rexdale
Blvd.) constructed diagonally across farms in Northern Etobicoke
Etobicoke
as a shortcut for travellers to Peel County (especially modern Brampton). First developed as an urban area by Rex Heslop in the post-war years around the new Rexdale
Rexdale
(the Elms) community, northern Etobicoke
Etobicoke
now has many apartment buildings as well as a large 'skyway' industrial park to the west, developed after Malton Airport (in nearby Mississauga) became Toronto's main "Pearson International" Airport, and faces many of the problems associated with such areas. Demographics[edit] See also: People from Etobicoke In 2011, according to the National Household Survey, Etobicoke
Etobicoke
was 58.7% White, 13.6% South Asian, 10.5% Black, 3.0% Latin American, 3.0% Filipino, 2.2% Chinese, 1.4% Korean, 1.3% Southeast Asian, 1.3% West Asian, 1.2% Arab, and 3.8% Other. 46.9% of the population are immigrants and 37.2% of North Etobicoke
Etobicoke
is of South Asian origin, the highest such percentage in Toronto.[15] English is the most spoken language in Etobicoke, followed by Italian, Punjabi, Russian, Ukrainian, Gujarati, Korean, Spanish, Persian, Portuguese, and Hindi.[citation needed]

Several major expressways like 427, 401, 407, 27 and QEW are routed through the area, making it ideal for automobile-based transportation. There are numerous four- and six-lane thoroughfares in Etobicoke, laid out on a grid system. Many exceptions to Toronto's gridded street matrix are found in Etobicoke. A number of overpasses and awkward intersections, such as Bloor/Kipling/Dundas West (Six-Points), have been created in an effort to reconcile the grid with these planning anomalies. The Bloor-Danforth subway
