Bloor West Village

Bloor West Village typifies why Toronto is known as a city of neighbourhoods: far from the central core, the neighbourhood has a small town feel complete with a busy main street, Bloor, that has just the right mix of services and shops. It's also a very family oriented neighbourhood and the strollers will be out in force by day. The neighbourhood is bookended by High Park in the east and the Humber Valley in the west where riverside trails lead south to the lake or north through the wooded ravine. The residential areas to the north and south have a solid stock of early twentieth century housing.

The Akiwenzie family's sustainable fishing future
