Where/What are the Anglo Canadien sections of Toronto or Tronto (as I hear the natives call it) and the GTA in general?

It's a majority Anglo-Canadian city, founded by Anglo-Canadians, so they're everywhere. I'd say Oakville has a reputation for having a particularly high WASP population though.

From what I understand it is a very diverse city kinda of like NYC's outer boros. But everything I find just seems to focus on the minority areas like the Chinese or South Asian Areas. That is why I ask.

Toronto is about 50 percent foreign born with races, ethnicities and cultures from all over.. Anglos are the single largest group but there are huge populations of Chinese, Indians, Italians, Portuguese, Koreans, Phillipinos etc. North York and Scarborough have large vis min populations but even in Old T.O you get a mix of everything including large groups of anglos. It is said by the city of Toronto that over 140 languages spoken and over 50 percent their mother tongue is not English. Although Toronto was overwhelmingly Anglo prior to the 60's, as a result of Canada's liberal immigration since then, Toronto has recieved massive numbers of immigrants and refugees. By any measure Toronto is a diverse place.

The areas of Rosedale, Forest Hill, Bridle Path in central Toronto have a pretty high concentration as well.

The core in general has a fair bit of anglos, as well as the the corridor along Yonge and Bayview up to the 401. West/Central Etobicoke, and the area around the QEW and Lakeshore from Mississauga to Burlington. More distance suburbs like Halton Hills, Milton, Caledon, Aurora, Newmarket, Stouffville, most of Durham Region. Even in Brampton and Markham which have very large immigrant groups, the immigrants are mostly in the neighbourhoods built after 1980 or so, older areas have a decent amount of anglos. No where is going to be completely Anglo of course, we're mostly talking at most a little over half anglo, and then older immigrant groups (ex Italians, Blacks, Germans, Polish) and/or some wealthier but more recent immigrants from places like China.

When I first moved here (from Florida/ Texas) that was one of the first question that came to mind...where are all the white folks! I agree with plmbpmp Oshawa has a large population of Anglo-Canadians and the further east you go you'll find Anglo's.
