Etobicoke is the western portion of the City of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with a population of approximately 345,000. The official 2001 census count was 338,117. It is bordered on the south by Lake Ontario, on the east by the Humber River, on the west by the city of Mississauga, and on the north by the city of Vaughan.
It is thought that the French explorer, Étienne Brûlé, was the first European to visit the area, circa 1615.
The name "Etobicoke" was derived from the Mississauga word wah-do-be-kang, meaning "place where the black/wild alders grow", which was used to describe the area between Etobicoke Creek and the Humber River. The first provincial land surveyor, Augustus Jones, also spelled it as "ato-be-coake". Etobicoke was finally adopted as the official name in 1796.
The township of Etobicoke was incorporated in 1850. In 1953, Etobicoke Township became a part of the newly-formed regional government, the Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto ("Metro").
In 1967, the township of Etobicoke was merged with three small lakeside municipalities — Long Branch, New Toronto, and Mimico — to form the borough of Etobicoke. The borough was reincorporated as a city in 1984.
In 1998, six local municipalities (including Etobicoke) and the Metropolitan Toronto government merged to form the amalgamated City of Toronto.

Anna and Alex’s Tips
There are two commons types of bungalows in Etobicoke. The first a detached, single family Etobicoke dwelling with one level above ground, on its own lot, and completely separated from any adjacent housing. The other is a semi-bungalow in Etobicoke. Semi-bungalows are detached, single family dwelling with one and a half levels above ground, on its own lot, and completely separated from any adjacent Etobicoke housing. This is sometimes referred to as a storey and a half. Some Etobicoke home buyers prefer bungalows because of their cozy home feeling.
