From 1795 to today, the suburban district of North York has gone through many changes. It was originally an agricultural settlement up until the 1900s, where it developed from a township to a borough, and finally, to a city, which is now located within Toronto. North York is a flourishing hub of activities, volunteer services, and local businesses.


Residents can stay in shape at North York’s sports clubs that offer activities throughout the year, including:

  • skiing
  • hockey
  • skating
  • swimming
  • tennis

Spend time with friends or family while all your material needs are met at the Yorkdale Shopping Centre and the Fairview Mall. You’ll find almost every product and service imaginable, whether you need apparel, financial assistance, spa products, or medical advice.

Explore the ethnic districts like Little Moscow, Koreatown, and the Persian sector by trying their succulent cuisine at their restaurants or grocery stores. Looking for new fashion styles? Check out their retail stores to add a little zest to your wardrobe.

Volunteer Services

North York has its share of organizations that provide its residents with opportunities to lend a hand to the community all year long.

Donate, distribute food, or garden for the North York Harvest Food Bank while working on long-term food solutions with fellow community members that are dedicated to improving North York’s quality of life. They offer support through shelter and drop-in meal programs, prenatal programs, and community kitchens.

Residents can also volunteer at the North York Community House and choose between becoming a mentor, helping with homework, and hosting a kit building workshop. The North York Community House has helped over 13 thousand newcomers in facilitating their transition to Canadian life.
