About Eglinton West

Eglinton West is not known as Little Jamaica for no reason. Located along Eglinton Avenue West, a large number of Jamaican businesses are located along this strip of neighborhood. But there are also other businesses of Caribbean and Black Canadian communities that is why some calls this strip the “Harlem” of  Toronto. Around 177,000-plus Jamaican community who lives mostly in the Greater Toronto Area have businesses along Eglinton Avenue West.

During Eglinton West’s prime, the strip takes pride in having more barber shops per square kilometer than anywhere else in Canada. It was like a practice to go to a barber shop and get a fresh cut while listening to music from stereos and storefronts. During summer, Eglinton West is transformed to a lot of color and glitter as the people work tirelessly creating Caribana costumes for the parade.

However, due to the digital age and increasingly gentrified Toronto, Eglinton West changed as well. Many people share the same sentiment about the place not the same as before anymore. A large Jamaican population has moved out of the neighbourhood to the suburbs, and old businesses close and are being replaced by non-Caribbean businesses.

Josh Colle, an area councilor hoping to bring back the old community, pushed for the renaming of the laneway behind a row of stores on the South of Eglinton into “Reggae Lane” to recognize the reggae history and Jamaican contribution to the community.

While the Eglinton West strip has had a lot of changes recently, some important establishments still remain. And even if it’s tough to stay in the business, some still choose to stay and not plan to go away.
