Thornhill (2011 population 110,430) is a community in the Regional Municipality of York in Ontario, Canada.
It is split between the cities of Vaughan and Markham, lying along the north border of Toronto, centred on Yonge Street. Once a police village, Thornhill is now a community and postal designation. According to the 2001 Census, Thornhill-Vaughan's population was 56,361, and the population of Thornhill-Markham was 47,333.
It is immediately south and south-west of Richmond Hill. Thornhill was founded in 1794.
Its first settlers on Yonge Street in Thornhill were Asa Johnson (who settled on the Vaughan side) and Nicholas Miller (c.1760?1810; who settled on the Markham side). Of particular importance was the arrival of Benjamin Thorne (January 4, 1794 - July 2, 1848) in 1820 from Dorset, England, who was operating a gristmill, a sawmill, and a tannery in the community.
The settlement came to be known as Thorne's Mills, and later, Thorne's Hill, from which its current name is derived. Thornhill has a very ethnically diverse population.
It is home to a significant number of Jewish, Chinese, Korean, Iranian, and
Italian people. According to 2001 Federal Census data, the electoral district of Thornhill (which is not entirely congruent with the neighbourhood) consists of Chinese, the largest visible minority, accounting for almost 11% of total residents (12,610), followed by South Asian (6,595), Black (2,665), Korean (2,660), Filipino (2,535), and West Asian (2,355).
