Living in North York, ON

North York is one of six administrative districts in the City of Toronto, which is part of the Toronto Metropolitan Area. It was incorporated as a city in 1979, and was folded into Toronto in 1979, but most residents still see it as a unique entity on its own. Formerly very suburban in tone, North York now has two distinct sections — North York City Centre and North York Industrial. The City Centre core is home to many international corporations and features all the amenities one would expect to find in a bustling, modern business district. The name Industrial is deceptive — the neighbourhoods in this area tend to be more suburban in feel, and feature a wealth of diversity in families, lifestyles, and culture that makes them ideal for anyone who enjoys family living in close proximity to big city amenities.

What Are the Best Neighbourhoods in North York? 

North York comprises about three dozen distinct neighbourhoods, ranging from the chic, modern City Centre districts to the family-centered small-town feel of more suburban areas, like Bathurst Manor. These are some of the most popular neighbourhoods in North York. 

  • Bathurst Manor. This large, quiet residential neighbourhood is a magnet for families, where nearly half of all households have children living at home. It's also one of the most diverse neighbourhoods — about a third of the families living here speak a language other than English at home. If you enjoy family-oriented activities and suburban life, this could be the neighourhood for you.
  • York Mills. One of Toronto's most affluent and exclusive neighbourhoods, York Mills is famed for its extensive properties, lush landscapes, and upscale dining and shopping options. The excellent schools and wealth of recreational opportunities make it a popular option for executive families.
  • Ella. The densely populated neighbourhood is a traditional gateway city, culturally diverse and welcoming to all. It's served by multiple shopping malls, and features a network of public parks and community centres that provide recreational opportunities for all residents.
  • Parkwoods. Known for its gently rolling hills and tree-lined streets, this middle-income neighborhood features an abundance of greenspace and natural beauty. Its close proximity to major highways make it a popular neighbouhood with commuters who enjoy scenic suburban living.
  • Caribou Park. Bucolic is not a word usually associated with communities surrounded by a busy city, but it suits Caribou Park to a tee. The tree-lined streets wind their way through diverse neighbourhoods, and mimic the meandering path of Otter Creek, which runs through many of the backyards. The tight-knit, walkable community features small shops, and some of the best bagels in the city.

Regardless of which neighbourhood you decide to move to, SmartStop Self Storage offers storage units in North York within 10 kilometres of Bathurst Manor, York Mills, Ella, Parkwoods, and Caribou Park to suit all your storage needs, including covered loading and accepted deliveries as well as climate-controlled units to protect your belongings throughout the year.
