Welcome to The Junction!

Welcome to The Junction, where community, commerce, and creativity converge to create a vibrant and thriving neighbourhood. Nestled at the heart of Dundas St West and Keele St, extending east to Indian Grove and west to Quebec Ave, The Junction BIA fosters a beautiful and safe environment where local businesses can flourish. Steeped in history as the original commercial strip for the West Toronto railway connection community, the Junction has always been Toronto’s Favourite Meeting Place. Here, a diverse mix of businesses offers an eclectic array of goods and services, inviting patrons to explore and engage with the neighbourhood’s unique character.

Recognized as one of the ‘hip’ communities by the New York Times and listed among the world’s 50 “coolest neighbourhoods” by Time Out, the Junction has garnered international acclaim as a must-visit destination in Toronto. Renowned for its vibrant patio scene through initiatives like CaféTO in the Junction during summer, the neighbourhood offers an unparalleled outdoor dining experience.

At the forefront of innovation and artistry, the Junction proudly hosts annual events like the award-winning Window Wonderland. This interactive outdoor gallery transforms the neighbourhood into a mesmerizing display of augmented reality (AR) installations by local and international artists, captivating visitors with its blend of creativity and technology. Our five permanent AR wall murals have positioned the Junction as a recognized AR destination within Toronto, further enhancing its allure as a hub for art, culture and innovation.

Join us in celebrating the spirit of the Junction, where tradition meets modernity and community thrives amidst creativity and commerce.
