We would like to acknowledge that this community is situated upon traditional Indigenous territories that include: the Wendat, the Anishnabeg Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations. The treaty that was signed for this particular parcel of land is collectively referred to as the Toronto Purchase and applies to lands east of Brown’s Line to Woodbine Avenue and north towards Newmarket. We also recognize and respect the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples on this land. Weston is situated on what is commonly known as the ‘The Carrying Place Trail’.
We hope this website will provide you with the information you’re looking for about our favourite corner of the City – Weston Village! Whether you’re a long-time resident, or someone who is considering a move to our community, we know you’ll find what you’re looking for on welcometoweston.ca.
The Village of Weston was founded in 1796 on the banks of the majestic Humber River along which some of the most picturesque bike trails in the entire City can be found. Our historic homes have been used as backdrops for film and television sets. Located within 5 minutes of the 400 series highways and our GO stop (only 18 minutes to Union Station!) makes Weston ideal for getting in or out of the City. Opened in 2015, the new UP Express (UPX) runs between Union Station and Pearson airport, with a full-service stop in Weston. The Weston Farmers’ Market serves up fresh, local produce every Saturday from late May through the end of October. Our schools consistently rate among the top schools in the former City of York with an excellent International Baccalaureate program at the local high school and our beautiful Carnegie library, designed in the Arts & Crafts style, has celebrated over 105 years of history! Artscape Weston Common is our newest neighbour offering programming for young and old and housing 2 amazing organizations, Shakespeare In Action (SIA) and UrbanArts.
With over 200 years of history behind us, we look forward to a bright future! Whether you are a homeowner, renter or visitor, Weston Village will not only keep you intrigued but will welcome you back again and again…
Come discover Weston Village ~ one of the best kept secrets in the City!
