Once-upon-a-time FOREST HILL was a separate village, just north of downtown TORONTO. Amalgamated into the city in 1967, the neighbourhood is heavily treed and its undulating topography includes several modest hills and a nearby ravine. The village centre is nothing special, although excellent coffee and good food is on offer, but the surrounding streets are lined with mature trees and stolid mansions.
Statistics Canada pegs the average Forest Hill income at $102,000 per annum, compared with $41,000 in TORONTO’s Census Metropolitan Area.
Notable Forest Hill institutions: Upper Canada College, Bishop Strachan School, Timothy Eaton Memorial Church <INTERIOR PHOTO ABOVE>, St. Michael’s College School, and Grace Church-on-the-Hill.
