    About

    L'Amoreaux is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, situated east of Victoria Park Avenue, south of McNicoll Avenue, west of Kennedy Road and north of Huntingwood Drive. L'Amoreaux is named after Josue L'Amoreaux (1738–1834), a French Huguenot loyalist who settled in the area. Prior to the amalgamation of Toronto in 1998, L'Amoreaux was a neighbourhood of the former city of Scarborough, Ontario, and prior to the amalgamation of municipalities, it formed part of the town of Agincourt....

    L'Amoreaux arrived via New York City with wife Elizabeth, seven children and two nephews in 1816. The family spread throughout the Greater Toronto Area and eventually many later relatives returned to the United States. L'Amoreaux sold his land and moved to Markham, and the remaining family left Scarborough by 1840. St. Paul L'Amoreaux Church in Scarborough and Ebenzer United Church in Markham contains graves of L'Amoreaux descendants. L'Amoreaux Park, L'Amoreaux Community Centre and L'Amoreaux Tennis Centre perpetuate the L'Amoreaux name in the area.

    History

    L'Amoreaux arrived via New York City with wife Elizabeth, seven children and two nephews in 1816. The family spread throughout the Greater Toronto Area and eventually many later relatives returned to the United States. L'Amoreaux sold his land and moved to Markham, and the remaining family left Scarborough by 1840. St. Paul L'Amoreaux Church in Scarborough and Ebenzer United Church in Markham contains graves of L'Amoreaux descendants. L'Amoreaux Park, L'Amoreaux Community Centre and L'Amoreaux Tennis Centre perpetuate the L'Amoreaux name in the area.

    In 2000, farmland being developed for housing just north of L'Amoreaux Park North revealed the existence of a long-defunct Wyandot First Nations village. Similar in size to the Iroquoian Village at Crawford Lake Conservation Area, it had several long houses. The site is known as the "Alexandra Site". After examination of the site and retrieval of artifacts, the site is now single-family housing. The site did not have any burial sites. Plaques were erected in L'Amoreaux Park North to mark the discovery. Archaeologists believe that the site is related to other sites found in Scarborough, such as Taber Hill and Thomson Park.

    Character

    The area is a suburban residential neighbourhood predominantly of single-family detached homes and townhomes, dating from the late 1950s, as well as some mid to high-rise apartment buildings and condominiums. One will find many tree-lined streets, huge sidewalks, and winding roads. There are many developments currently underway and others that have recently reached completion on vacated Ontario Hydro corridors.

    Demographics

    Today, the neighbourhood shows little French flavour, although it is quite diverse. Today, there is a mix of ethnicities, with Chinese being the most predominant. South Asian and Chinese are the two biggest ethnic groups in the area and just under 20% of residents speak a Chinese language at home. The neighbourhood's residents are mainly middle class citizens.
