Etobicoke has grown – and continues to grow – in popularity, but with a low population density, it hasn’t sacrificed the spacious feeling and charm that many seek it out for. The population of Etobicoke hovers around 345,000 people.

When it comes to Etobicoke real estate, the majority of homes in Etobicoke are detached or semi-detached single-family houses on large streets. You’ll also find condominium and apartment developments throughout the area, many of which are next to the Humber River or on the waterfront.

Etobicoke is known for its lush landscape and touch of natural beauty, so it’s no surprise that you’ll find numerous green spaces and parks throughout the area. Local favourites include James Gardens, Centennial Park, Colonel Samuel Smith Park, and Humber Bay Park. Etobicoke is also home to the word-class St. George’s Golf and Country Club, a five-time host of the Canadian Open, ranked as one of the world’s top golf clubs.
