Forest Hill is an affluent neighbourhood in central Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Along with Rosedale(pics) and The Bridle Path, it is considered to be one of Toronto’s wealthiest neighbourhoods. It was originally incorporated as a village in 1923, and later annexed by the City of Toronto in 1967, along with the Village of Swansea. The village was named after the summer home of John Wickson; previously it had been known as Spadina Heights (a name that continued to be applied to the neighbourhood into the twentieth century). Prior to World War II, Forest Hill's population was predominantly made up of wealthy Anglo-Protestants (i.e., rich White Anglo-Saxon Protestants, or WASPs). During the 1940s and 1950s, many upwardly mobile Jews moved from the Spadina area of Toronto into Forest Hill. Forest Hill has many businesses catering to the Jewish community along Eglinton Avenue. Today, Jews make up about half of the population of Forest Hill, according to the 2001 census.
