The Junction is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, that is near the West Toronto Diamond, a junction of four railway lines in the area.
The neighbourhood was previously an independent city called West Toronto, that was also its own federal electoral district until amalgamating with the city of Toronto in 1909.
The main intersection of the area is Dundas Street West and Keele Street.
The Stockyards is the northeastern quadrant of the neighbourhood. As with most Toronto neighbourhoods outside of the central downtown core, the area was primarily rural until the 1870s. John Scarlett was the first land owner and employer in the area and built his home "Runnymede" in 1838, near where Dundas Street West and St. John's Road meet today.
By 1817 he had acquired most of property that is now the Junction and much more to the north and west to the Humber River. From 1857 to 1876 the Carlton Race Course dominated the southeast of the neighbourhood. Today, the term "
The Junction" is generally applied to the area north of Annette, south of St. Clair, and between Runnymede Road and the Canadian National Railway corridor to the east which intersects with the Canadian Pacific Railway corridor at West Toronto Diamond. Historically, the boundary lines cover a considerably larger area.[
The City of Toronto, including
The Junction neighbourhood, is served by two secular school boards, and two separate school boards.
The two secular school boards are the English language Toronto District School Board, and the French language Conseil scolaire Viamonde.
The two separate school boards are the English language Toronto Catholic District School Board, and the French language Conseil scolaire de district catholique Centre-Sud.
