Facts

East York is a former suburb of Toronto, which was a borough of Metropolitan Toronto before it was amalgamated into the megacity of Toronto in 1998. Its main claim to fame is that, before the amalgamation, it was Canada's only borough.Over the last thirty years East York has become a major arrival point for immigrants, many of whom have established their first Canadian residence in the apartments that are plentiful in Thorncliffe Park and Crescent Town. Most of these groups include Bengalis,Indians, Philopino's and Sri Lankans. East york also has a very well established Greek population and a developing Chinese community. East York's population was 115,185 in (2001).
