New Toronto and the First World War

New Toronto was officially founded in 1913 when it separated from the Township of Etobicoke and became a Village.  Due to the growth of its population it became the Town of New Toronto in 1920.  It remained a separate municipality until its forced amalgamation with the Borough of Etobicoke in 1967.  It is now part of the City of Toronto. 

The boundaries of the town were, Lake Ontario on the south; a line running north from Lake Ontario up Twenty-third Street to the railway line on the west; easterly along the railway line until it meets a line along Dwight Avenue on the north; and, down Dwight Avenue to Lake Ontario on the east.
