A west-end community known for its quiet charm, Etobicoke (the “k” is silent) packs a lot of punch into its neighbourhoods. You’ll also find a variety of shops, salons and multicultural restaurants, including ones that offer South Asian and Caribbean delicacies.
Several major expressways, like 427, 401, 407, 27 and Gardiner Expressway, are routed through the area, making it ideal for automobile-based transportation. There are numerous four- and six-lane thoroughfares in Etobicoke, laid out in a grid system. Many exceptions to Toronto's gridded street matrix are found in Etobicoke.
