The neighbourhood of Agincourt, located in the north-east end of Toronto.
Since the 1980s, this area of Toronto has seen a big influx of Asian immigrants, mostly coming from Hong Kong and Taiwan. It's a nice area, with several Chinese shopping centers; hence the nickname, "Asiancourt".
"Callaghan (the curator of The Scarborough Historical Museum) was surprised to find that some newer residents actually believed the name of the community was 'Asiancourt,' a sometimes friendly, sometimes derogatory term used because of the community's large Asian population."
