The Lowdown on Caledonia-Fairbank

Your Typical Neighbour

Caledonia-Fairbank is a neighbourhood rich in diversity and delicious eats, from Jamaican jerk spots, Portuguese churrasqueiras, Filipino grocery stores, and more. Your typical neighbour could be a hard working immigrant family who proudly displays their country colours, especially around FIFA World Cup. TVs in café’s and pubs are permanently set to Euro soccer and daytime soap opera channels - who doesn’t love a good telenovela? This community stands out for its laid back charm, with classic brick semi-detached bungalows, tree-lined streetscapes, and friendly elderly porch sitters.

What We

This neighbourhood proudly wears multiculturalism on its sleeves. The main languages of local conversation, besides English, are Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and Tagalog.
In 2011, Caledonia-Fairbanks was voted as one of Toronto’s safest neighbourhoods!
Downtown is easily accessible by car via Dufferin Street, and Allen Road allows quick access to the 401.

What We Don't

Though there are regular buses on Rogers Road and Eglinton to connect you to the Yonge-University line, there is no direct access to subway lines. Also, the ongoing construction along Eglinton West has been causing regular traffic congestion and noise pollution.

Most of the neighbourhood as it exists today was planned in the interwar years of the 1920s & 1930s built with mostly small detached two and a half storey family homes. Like other “buffer hoods” to the south (eg Corso Italia), Caledonia Fairbanks is both adjacent to, but more affordable than fancier, more in-demand neighbourhoods - for the real estate searcher, this can mean opportunity. As the city continues to get less and less affordable, pockets like this are likely to see faster than average change, including gentrification, housing stock changes (eg infill) and yes, price growth. Transit and transportation are likely to see a big improvement with the completion of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT in late 2022.

Currently this neighbourhood does not offer direct access to the subway but residents can access the Yonge-University-Spadina line using the TTC buses on Rogers Road and Eglinton Avenue. However this will likely change with the completion of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. For those wishing to drive, the 401 can be accessed from the Allen Expressway and the downtown core using  Dufferin Street.
