About Leslieville:

Toronto’s answer to Brooklyn, Leslieville, is one of the cities hippest places to dine, drink, shop and live. Historically home to the light industry and the Film District, it’s now a colorful and exciting strip full of interior design shops, local eateries, funky boutiques, and independent cafés.

The tight-knit collection of shop owners, most of whom live within blocks of their work, give this area a warm, community feel. Still untouched by big box retailers and uncharted by tour buses, the sidewalks are often bustling with neighborhood friends, baby strollers, and their canine companions.

History of Leslieville:

  • Leslievilles roots go back to the 1850s, when the waterfront was home to George Leslie’s nursery.
  • At that time, most of Leslieville’s residents were gardeners or employed at the nearby brick-making factories.
  • A significant part of the neighbourhood’s history, however, is as an industrial hub, for the lighting, metal processing, and tanning industries.
  • Alexander Muir, the composer of ‘The Maple Leaf Forever’, was the first principal of the Leslieville Public School, one of the first buildings in the village. The tree that inspired his song is still standing today and has become a famous landmark in the community.
  • The Broadview Hotel wasn’t originally a hotel. Built in 1891 by soap magnate Archibald Dingman, the famous flophouse was first home to The Canadian Bank of Commerce and lawyer and dentist offices before it was retrofitted for hospitality in 1907.
  • June 2016 newlyweds boogied through their beloved Toronto neighbourhood accompanied by a New Orleans-style brass band.

Leslieville is Filled With Cozy, Family-filled Homes

Very much like a small village in look and feel, Leslieville has charming houses and quaint stores, nestled along mature tree-lined streets.

My, How the Neighbourhood Has Changed!

Installed in 1987, the green and white Leslieville street signs that run along Queen Street are historic markers symbolizing the residents renewed interest and pride in their quiet east end neighbourhood.

Don’t Miss Out!

With a new generation putting down roots, the classic Victorians homes tend to sell quickly.
