Basically I am a single male in late 20s, do not want to drive, would want to live somewhere within walking distance to grocery stores, shops to get food etc. and close to subway lines. I am not a bar person, so it is not a concern. And I am also expected to work in the financial services sector, so hopefully i don't need to commute much. of course it has too be relatively safe and quiet at night. I don't mind sharing a house or apartment with other people.

I guess there are many places like this, but since I have no idea about Toronto, some suggestions will be very much appreciated!

I think since you do not want to drive, you should live closer to where you will be working. You mentioned that you will be working in the Financial Services Sector, if you can brief me where your office will be, then we can take it from there. I worked in the Financial Services Sector myself, but, I live in Mississauga, which is around 35 minutes drive from Downtown Toronto. I do not work in Downtown Toronto.

Hope this helps!

Default Yonge and Eglinton

It sounds like you'll be happy in the Yonge-Eglinton area. It's right on the Yonge subway line, and you'll be about a 30-minute commute to the financial area (I'm assuming the Bay-King area). You can easily live at Y & E without a car- I did for 5 years. Everything is within easy walking distance- grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants and dozens of cafes. In addition the area is very safe. Probably one of the safest in Toronto. There are also many apartments available for rent, and new condos are going up in that area constantly. It is one of the more expense areas to live in rent-wise, but that's a price you pay for the convenience and amenities the area has to offer.
