Corso Italia is known as Toronto’s second Italian community, following Little Italy, although the neighbourhood has a much stronger Italian presence. Corso Italia is designated as a Business Improvement Area, the residents and independent business owners collaborate to stimulate the neighbourhood economy. The annual Corso Italia street festival draws in a large crowd every year, and all the shops and cafes along St Clair West keep people coming back.

Real Estate: Not only is there a large inventory on the market each year, but the neighbourhood has an incredibly wide range of mismatched architecture –  post war, early 20th century two story semis, modernist, and there are practically as many semi detached homes as there are semi detached homes.
