You won't find a Little Spain in Toronto, the way you find Little Italy, Greektown, Little Portugal, and so on. But there certainly are Spanish people--originally from Spain--in Toronto.

Cool. Just curious what area of Toronto did she live in? There are some pockets of the city I am not really familiar with so I always wonder who lives there.

She was from the east end, but her Spanish friends and relatives were all over the GTA. I remember that at her family weddings, I was introduced to many of them; and there was no single area of the GTA in which they lived. Some were in Mississauga, some were in North York, some were in Markham, some were in the City of Toronto itself (this was pre-1997, before Metro was amalgamated into one city) and so on. Their reasons for living where they did were pretty typical: close to work, close to good schools, ability to afford a house, and so on.

But that may be why they don't stand out, like other ethnic communities do: because they're all over, and not located in any one neighbourhood. They certainly knew how to get together and party when the occasion demanded!

Just goes to show ... there is always something new to discover in Toronto . Now I am on a quest to meet someone Spanish in Toronto lol .

Flash black ... The only Spanish people I meet in Toronto were went to the Spanish consulate once with my husband to get a travel visa... HOLLY RUDE!!!! I was dying ... the most unpleasant people where working there at that time. Two sour grapes running the show on that day! He still got the visa.... but it was kind of a comical experience ex Smilie Happy people looking to go on vacation ... really grouchy angry looking man working there reviewing the application ( I must have came during his siesta time).

Do you mean you mean is there a town in BC to meet Latinos? BC is a province in Canada. Have you arrived in BC?

If you're in the Vancouver area you can try this website to meet up with people: https://www.meetup.com/find/?allMeet...rt=recommended

Hmm ... if it is racist to ask for a white doctor, is it also racist to ask for a hispanic neighbourhood? Is there a difference?
