Islington Village in Etobicoke is one of Toronto’s more colourful neighbourhoods, one that likes to show off its history.

All across Canada, but especially in the big four markets of Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal, people are buying luxury homes at unprecedented rates, nowhere more than in Toronto and the GTA.
