With its beginnings as host to the 2015 Pan/Parapan Am Games Athletes Village, the 35-acre master-planned Canary District, in the West Don Lands, is now bringing new energy and vitality to Toronto's downtown east. Home to the 82,000 sq.ft. Cooper Koo Family YMCA, George Brown College's first student residence, residential buildings and the health-focused, vibrant Front Street Promenade, Canary District is an active and growing community. Connected to the 18-acre Corktown Common park, trails, neighbouring Distillery District, Leslieville and downtown Toronto, Canary District is the perfect address to live, work, shop and play. With the new addition of Canary Block, now is the ideal time to call Canary District home.


Canary District is perfect for those on the move. With frequent and easy access to the TTC 514 Cherry streetcar connecting directly with King Street, buses, and nearby subway stations, getting to the Financial District, Toronto Eaton Centre, or Union Station is quick and effortless. Take a 10 minute ride into the downtown core or get in some cardio with a Toronto Bike Share rental.

For those with slightly further destinations, the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway are only a short drive away, or you can graba train ticket at the proposed GO Station*, and sit back and enjoy the ride outside the city. The nearby Billy Bishop Airport is the perfect option for stress-free travel within North America.
