Schools

When searching for a home to buy or lease, I understand how important schools are for families with children. It is usually one of the first questions my clients, friends and family ask me when viewing a home, “How are the schools in the area? Buyers are looking to purchase a home in a specific neighbourhood because they want their children to attend the local school. Here is a comprehensive list of sites that provide information about schools, including rankings by the Fraser Institute.

A City within a Park

Toronto has more than 1,500 parks with numerous open spaces and 600 km of trails. The parks system covers 8,000 hectares, or roughly 13% of the city's land area. It includes about 40% of Toronto's natural areas, many of which lie within the ravine system and along the Lake Ontario shoreline. City parks also feature beaches, playgrounds, sports fields, gardens, conservatories, ice rinks, special events and much more for you to enjoy.
