What Do Statistics Say About The Etobicoke Insurance Market?
The township of Etobicoke was originally incorporated in 1851, but through a series of transitions (including that of being a city from 1967 to 1968), the city amalgamated with other south-eastern Ontario areas, including the borough of East York, Toronto, Scarborough North York and York, to become the City of Toronto. The name was originally derived from a native word for “a place where the alders grow”, and if one asks most residents where they live, they respond with “Etobicoke” rather than “Toronto”. Today, Etobicoke has a substantial and diverse population with an equally diversified economy.
Because of our interest in the insurance industry in various regions of Canada, we were curious about what might be revealed about the Etobicoke Insurance sector through the 2016 Statistics Canada census data. We decided to focus on the Etobicoke Centre Federal electoral district for our data.
