About Brockton Village:

Attributed to its quiet, unassuming nature, Brockton Village is quickly becoming a coveted neighbourhood for both urban trendsetters and young families looking for a charming, yet affordable, first home. The area’s Victorian row houses create a convivial atmosphere when combined with the influences of the large Portuguese community presence in Brockton’s shopping districts and brightly painted homes.

Residents of this swiftly transforming neighbourhood have plenty of shops to frequent along Dundas West, while Portuguese and Brazilian businesses, sprinkled in between trendy new bars and welcoming brunch spots, offer the perfect combination of adventure and promise.

History of Brockton Village:

  • Named after Sir Isaac Brock, a hero of the War of 1812, Brockton was a genuine village before it was annexed by Toronto in 1884. In fact, the bank at the intersection of Dundas West and Brock was formerly the Brockton town hall.
  • In the 1840s, a substantial influx of Irish immigrants escaping the potato famines settled in the area.
  • Over the last half of the 20th century, the area saw the influx of Portuguese immigrants and became known as part of the Little Portugal neighbourhood.
  • The largest and most majestic building is St. Helen’s Cathedral designed by Arthur Holmes who also designed St. Patrick’s Church, St. Michael’s College in U of T, and St. Francis of Assisi in Little Italy.
  • Before Lula Lounge, 1585 Dundas West had many different uses including as The Dundas Playhouse which had the first burlesque show in Toronto.

Affordable Victorian Architecture

Much of the original architecture survives so it’s possible to get a historic Victorian gem for significantly less than an equivalent home on the other side of Dufferin.

A Neighborhood with Character

The influence of the large Portuguese community can be seen in the multi-coloured row houses, semi-detached Victorians, and bungalows nestled up close to each other.

A Home for Everyone

Tree lined streets with modest, well-worn homes offer the perfect opportunity for homeowners who want to evolve their own properties alongside the neighbourhood that surrounds them.
