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.

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 Toronto gets 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 improve with the new Eglington line.
All in all, an affordable opportunity, with a cemetery greenspace running through the middle!
