Etobicoke is a former municipality that now makes up part of the city of Toronto. Etobicoke is bounded by Humber River to the East, Etobicoke Creek to the West, Steels Avenue to the North and by Lake Ontario to the South. Etobicoke boasts a population of 347,948 and contributes 13% of the City of Toronto’s overall population.
The name “Etobicoke” was derived from the Mississauga word “wadoopikaang”, meaning place where the alders grow, which described the area between Etobicoke Creek and the Humber River. Augustus Jones, the provincial land surveyor, spelled it as Ato-be-coake, and Etobicoke was eventually accepted as the official name in 1795.
In 1967, the Borough of Etobicoke was formed through the merger of Etobicoke, the Village of Long Branch, the Town of New Toronto and the Town of Mimico.
