Welcome to Bay Street Corridor

History of Bay Street Corridor

Welcome to Bay Street Corridor, one of the most densely populated neighbourhoods in Toronto! One of the major advantages is that it is located within walking distance of the Financial District, the Discovery District, the Hospital District, Toronto City Hall, Ryerson University, the University of Toronto and downtown Yonge Street. Bay Street Corridor was formerly known as St. John’s Ward and later on became known as just “ The Ward”. The Ward was mainly made up of Jewish Immigrants fleeing Europe in the 1890s. Then it became a mix of Italians and Chinese immigrants. In 1899, Toronto town hall was relocated to the corner of Queen and Bay street and has been a prominent location in Toronto ever since.
