    From Township to Amalgamation

    The name “Etobicoke” originates with the Mississauga First Nation, who called Etobicoke Creek and the area around it “Adobigok”, meaning “where the alders grow.” The Mississaugas had moved from the Mississagi River area on Lake Huron to the north shore of Lake Ontario around 1700.

    A thriving connection point for 200 years

    Looking back through the centuries, it’s amazing to realize that the master plan for Etobicoke Centre in the 21st century mirrors the early vision of a vital, connected community – even down to the idea of beautifying Dundas West. Early photos of Dundas show flowering catalpa trees that had been planted by a local, and the master plan unfolding now also includes generous plantings of trees and flowers along the street.

    Bloor and Islington is becoming even more connected to the rest of the GTA, making it an ideal base for exploration.
