ABOUT JANE AND FINCH
This Toronto neighborhood is located in the northwest of the city. Historically its name has been Elia but has also been known as Jane and Finch because it is centered at the intersection of Jane Street and Finch Avenue.
More recently, municipal planning documents have rebranded the area as University Heights.
The neighborhood boundaries are Highway 400 to the west, Driftwood Avenue to the east, Sheppard Avenue to the south, and Steeles Avenue to the north.
The area has a rich historical background. The earliest evidence of human presence in Elia dates back to the 1400s. Around that time, a village of the First Nations tribe was established along the banks of the Humber River and remained there until 1550.
More than two hundred years later, settlers of German origin arrived in the area followed by English and Scottish families in the 1820s.
The name Elia relates to the names of a schoolhouse and a church of the same denomination that were focal points of the early farming village. The church renamed Elijah, remains as the only landmark of the historic hamlet now characterized by residential subdivisions and shopping plazas.
By the 1960s, Jane-Finch started as a model suburban neighborhood. With a large stock of public housing designed for a socially and culturally diverse population, the area has received several waves of immigration. It is a densely populated zone with many new residents coming from the Caribbean, East Asia, South Asia, Africa, and South America.
Currently, the landscape of the area consists of high-rise tower blocks, wide streets, and large green spaces. In addition to the towers, with many lower-income households, pockets of more affluent detached and semi-detached houses can be found.
