title-thumb-placesThe Ultimate Neighbourhood Rankings

In September, 2015 Toronto Life Magazine released their October issue including a ranking of Toronto’s best neighbourhoods.

Using the services of The Martin Prosperity Institute, information was collected and compiled resulting in  scoring and ranking Toronto’s 140 neighbourhoods.

Data was acquired from a number of sources including the City of Toronto, Statistics Canada, the Fraser Institute, the Toronto Police Service, and the Centre for Research on Inner City Health.

Toronto Life scored each neighbourhood in 10 categories, broken down as follows:

  1. Housing 
  2. Crime
  3. Transit 
  4. Shopping
  5. Health 
  6. Entertainment 
  7. Community
  8. Diversity 
  9. Schools 
  10. Employment


The Numbers

  1. Housing – Best Neighbourhoods for Housing: Rouge, Centennial Scarborough and Highland Creek
  2. People – Highest percentage of families live in Bridle Path & Forest Hill South – Highest percentage of single live in Black Creek.
  3. Crime – The most dangerous neighbourhood is the Waterfront and safest is Humber Heights – Westmount
  4. Money – The best neighbourhoods to work in are Waterfront & University and the worst; Lambton Baby Point & Pleasant View 
  5. Schools – The best 3 neighbourhoods for schools are Rosedale-Moore Park, Lawrence Park South & Bathurst Manor.
  6. Transit – The best neighbourhoods for public transit are North St. James Town, Regent Park, Wychwood & Church-Yonge Corridor

Toronto Life also created an interactive (and addictive) feature that lets users create their own custom ranking by selecting and weighting their priorities.

Some of their findings confirm what we already know but there were also some surprises, especially in the top 10.
