District of York
York is a district of Toronto located between the West End and North York, York also borders both Etobicoke and the North End. It is made up of several lovely neighbourhoods including Baby Point, Lambton, Old Mill, Siverthorn and Weston.
In 2006, more than half of the population of York was born outside of Canada. Many Portuguese people live and own businesses in the southern area of York while many Eastern Europeans and Jewish people live in the east end of York. Many Blacks, Latin American and Asian descendants also live in various areas throughout York. York’s ethnic diversity has helped to shape this district and it has helped it grow into the colourful area that it is today.
