    Hot Junction Hood!

      Get in while you can! The Junction is one of the hottest neighbourhoods in Toronto and hasn’t reached its peak yet. As they say “Location, Location, Location”.

      The revitalization continues in this fun eclectic neighbourhood, as the coolest shops and services continue to open. Its even been discovered by The New York Times!

      Delicious restaurants, pubs and many funky cafes close by it will be hard to pick a favourite: Hula Girl, Cool Hand of a Girl, Crema, Vesuvio's pizza, Curry Twist, The Good Neighbour, The Beet, Sweet Potatoe, the list goes on…

      Choose from many antique shops, DVD's from Big Daddy's & family run shops just a short walk away, and it is a quick trip to Fresh Co., No Frills, Loblaws, Metro and all the big box stores.

      This is a friendly & courteous 'hood with neighbours always offering to help. There are many schools & activities for all ages nearby.

      Enjoy “hands on” community spirit that the Junction offers with recreation centres, libraries and local activities. Every September a five-block section of Dundas Street West, between Keele Street and Quebec Avenue, closes for the Junction Arts Festival a five-day jamboree of music. It drew 250,000 people last year! (www.junctionartsfest.com).

      GO GREEN! The West Toronto Rail Path provides a direct link for pedestrians and cyclists from the Junction to the Dundas and Lansdowne area, and cycle all the way downtown!

      It’s a “transit rider’s paradise” ~ Get on #30 Lambton, or the #40 junction bus routes take you to Dundas West station connecting you to the Yonge-University subway line and the GO Station.
