Toronto, Ontario, Canada is called "the city of neighbourhoods" because of the strength and vitality of its many communities. The city has upwards of 240 distinct neighbourhoods within its boundaries. Before 1998, Toronto was a much smaller municipality and formed part of Metropolitan Toronto. When the city amalgamated that year, Toronto grew to encompass the former municipalities of York, East York, North York, Etobicoke, and Scarborough. Each of these former municipalities still maintains, to a certain degree, their own distinct identities, and the names of these municipalities are still used by their residents. The area known as Toronto before the amalgamation is sometimes called the "old" City of Toronto, the Central District or simply "Downtown".

The "old" City of Toronto is, by far, the most populous and dense part of the city. It is also the business centre of the city.

The "inner ring" suburbs of York and East York are older, predominantly middle-class areas, and are highly ethnically diverse. Much of the housing stock in these areas consists of old pre-war single-family houses and post-war high-rises. Many of the neighbourhoods in these areas were built up as streetcar suburbs and contain many dense and mixed-use streets. Mostly they share many characteristics with sections of the "old" city, outside of the downtown core.

The "outer ring" suburbs of Etobicoke, Scarborough, and North York are much more uptown and exurban in nature. The following is a list of the more notable, divided by the neighbourhoods' location based on the former municipalities, the names of which are still known and commonly used by Torontonians.

Old Toronto

The Old City of Toronto refers to the City of Toronto and its boundaries from 1967 to 1997. It is sometimes referred to as the "South" or "Central" district, or more frequently as "the (downtown) core." Some of these names such as "The Fashion District" are (or were) used as marketing for the areas or by BIAs, this area is actually called "King-Spadina" by locals, another example is the "Old Town of York", known also as "King and Parliment". Many were recreated or branded to reconnect the areas with its past history, early beginnings, or even recent use and prominance. Some historical city 'wards', considered neighbourhoods at one time are no longer used for neighbourhood discinction as they once were, for example, St. George and St. Patrick wards. The use for St. Lawrence ward has remained, known today just as "St. Lawrence".

For the purposes of geographic distinction, the neighbourhoods of the Old City are broken down into four sub sections;
