Discover Swansea Toronto Neighbourhood

According to popular history, the first European to visit the place was the young scout and interpreter Étienne Brûlé, who came to Canada with Samuel de Champlain in 1608 – over a century before the first French settlement was established in the area.

Once settlers did start moving in, they allegedly compared the spot between the Humber River and Grenadier Pond to the Garden of Eden – eventually naming it Swansea in the early 1800s.

Today, Swansea is, in many ways, defined by its borders, with rich Ellis family history and impressive sceneries guiding you through the whole community.
