NOTE: The apartments and townhouses available, are usually located in residential settings and buildings that have been designed and built for rent to newcomers. There are no great social or economical differences among the different areas, so housing prices don’t vary too much. Different from many cities in the world, where smart costly apartments are for rich people and low cost simpler apartments are for popular classes, there is no such a difference in Ontario. It may be stated that a 2-room apartment costs $ 1050 in a clean and neat building, located in a peaceful residential area, picturesque and nice, and $ 950 in a non-advisable area, with historic social conflicts and low security rates. (e.g. Jane & Finch).

      -      NON ADVISABLE AREAS in Toronto (from our readers)

        -       JANE & FINCH (Traditional area with social conflicts and security problems)

        -       Markham Road & Eglinton

-       WESTON & LAWRENCE

-       Victoria Park & Dantforth

 

 

 RECOMENDATION:

 

You can find an apartment in a nice, safe  and residential area for almost as much as for one in a non-advisable area. Take your time aside to know the neighbourhood and seek housing in the area that suits you best. Ask your friends and acquaintances to find a good place to live in. Remember that the people in the area you will live in are the ones that will eventually be your children’s friends at school.
