of Etobicoke, (pronounced: e-toe-bi-coe) known as a Township prior to 1967, joined the City of Toronto in the amalgamation of 1998. Etobicoke forms the majority of the western part of Toronto, though it should be noted that Missisauga
, and Oakville
are all more westerly than it.
Etobicoke is a mixed area, with more affluent areas such as the Kingsway and Bloor West Village, and less prosperous areas such as Lakeshore and Albion.
It should be further noted that Jane and Finch, although a notable area, is NOT in Etobicoke, in fact, it is much closer to Vaughan.
