WELCOME TO THE LITTLE PORTUGAL

Located west of downtown in the “Old” City of Toronto, Little Portugal is a neighbourhood and ethnic enclave with over a quarter of the 12,000 residents of Portuguese descent.  Dundas Street is the destination for an evening for great Portuguese food. It’s the heart of the community that boasts restaurants, bars, markets, and bakeries. Having witnessed rapid gentrification, Little Portugal is the epitome of a neighbourhood in transition. Its authentic vibe is charming. For homebuyers it’s a place that offer plenty of opportunity.
