The English dominated Toronto’s early history, establishing many industries and institutions, and shaping politics, law, and the arts in the city. The contributions of English-born Governors General and senior military officers such as Sir George Yonge, Lord Dufferin, and Earl Bathurst are remembered in the names of Toronto’s main thoroughfares. Osgoode Hall is a reminder of London-born William Osgoode, who was the first Chief Justice of Upper Canada.


If you hear “Kiwi” or “Aussie” being called out around Brunswick Avenue and Bloor Street, it’s probably a member of Toronto’s Australian or New Zealand community greeting a fellow national. The neighbourhood is home to the TRANZAC Club, a large building that has served as a gathering place for the community’s clubs and cultural organizations since 1961. The mandate of the club is to foster friendly relations between Canadians, Australians, and New Zealanders through social and recreational activities.
