Chinatown (Chinese: 多倫多華埠) is an ethnic enclave in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with a high concentration of ethnic Chinese residents and businesses extending along Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue. First developed in the late 19th century, chinatown Toronto is now one of the largest Chinatowns in North America and one of several major Chinese-Canadian communities in the Greater Toronto Area. There are approximately six Chinatowns in Greater Toronto as its shown in chinatown Toronto map, including in the municipalities of Markham and Mississauga.
The first Chinatown of Toronto existed from the 1870s to 1961 along York Street and Elizabeth Street between Queen and Dundas street within Toronto Ward district. Most of the space is now occupied by the new Toronto City Hall and its civil square as its mentioned in chinatown Toronto map, with only one third of this original Chinatown left south of Dundas. The present day old Chinatown of Toronto along Spadina was formerly a Jewish district. With the influx of Chinese immigration during the 1960s due to the lifting of Canada racial exclusion policies, Chinese businesses expanded in this area
