Entertainment and Tourism

Real Estate

The Church and Wellesley neighbourhood is still home to a great number of rental apartments. While much of the downtown core has been converted to condos over the last few decades, there are still many available apartments in this part of town. Given its location in an older section of Toronto, some historic architecture is on display along residential streets. You will see a mixture of older detached brick homes, semi-detached houses and large old buildings that have been converted into multi-unit complexes.


Pollution/ Noise

This is a very busy part of downtown. Church Street itself is often packed with traffic, pedestrians, and ongoing construction, making it very noisy. The neighbourhood is also close enough to the downtown core that the air quality is noticeably more polluted than on the outskirts of the city. The residential streets are short and connect immediately to a major artery, so there aren’t many places to get away from the noise.

Crime Rate

The crime rate in this area is higher than the average for the rest of Toronto. Assaults along the Yonge-Church Corridor are more than twice as common as they are in the rest of the city, according to the 2011 CBC Crime Map. Sexual assault and drug charges are also higher here. Partly, this is caused by very high population density in the area, as well as the high number of nightclubs. Because these statistics include the entire Yonge-Church corridor, they include parts of other neighbourhoods with higher incidences of crime. This could skew the statistics somewhat. During regular hours, Church and Wellesley certain feels like a safe place to be.



This part of town is short on schools. With few children living in the area, the demand simply isn’t high. At the south end of the neighbourhood on Alexander Street, the Church Street Junior Public School does provide public education from K-6. A professional college also makes its home here. Trillium College offers social programs in addition to programs that focus on the health, technology and business professions.

Public Transportation

Access to the Yonge branch of the subway system is available at Yonge and Wellesley. The 506 Carlton Streetcar line provides transit along the southern edge of the neighbourhood. In addition, just a block north of The Village are the Bloor and Sherbourne subway stations.


Family Life

There are very few families with children living in this area compared to the rest of the city.
