The Toronto Star featured an article about a recent study on Thorncliffe - click here. Check out these numbers which reinforce Thorncliffe's place as "Canada's most populated immigrant neighbourhood"

From the article:

* Since 2001, 1,268 residents moved into Thorncliffe, yet only 20 housing units were added.

* The median household income has dropped, from $40,157 in 2001 to $38,456 in 2006, and is 40 per cent below the $64,128 median for the city.

Another article from "Inside Toronto" - here - has other findings from the same study:

* From the 2003 study to the current report, there has been an increase of 300 per cent in the Urdu speaking population, the Afghan population has doubled
