Bathurst Manor is a neighbourhood in north-central Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It sits on a plateau bounded on the north by Steeles Avenue West, on the west by Dufferin Street, on the east by the Don River (west branch), and on the south by Sheppard Avenue West. The area is also regarded as part of the Downsview postal area as designated by Canada Post. It is part of the former City of North York, which merged with five other municipalities and a regional government to form the new "City of Toronto" in 1998. It is part of federal and provincial electoral district York Centre, and Toronto electoral ward 10: York Centre (East). In 2006, it had a population of 14,615.
Bathurst Manor is one of several heavily Jewish-populated neighbourhoods on Bathurst Street. It is a suburban community of Ranch-style house, bungalows and side-split single-family homes built in the late 1950s to early 1960s. While most of the population was originally Jewish, and several synagogue congregations are located in the neighbourhood, there are also significant Italian, Russian and Filipino populations.
The community is home to the Canadian headquarters of B'nai Brith at 15 Hove St, the Bathurst Jewish Community Centre (BJCC), the Lipa Green Building at 4588 Bathurst St is for Jewish Community Services.
In 1996, the Toronto Transit Commission extended subway service to the area with the opening of the Downsview Station, at Allen Road and Sheppard Avenue, allowing a thirty-minute train ride to Union Station at the southern cusp of downtown Toronto.
There are three Toronto District School Board public schools and one private school:
Bathurst Manor is a beautiful mature neighbourhood that was started in the 50's and 60's. Back in those days is was mostly bungalows and ranch homes. Since that time we have seen many luxury 2 storey homes going up. Lots are large and well maintained. Being just steps from transit and major highways Bathurst Manor has become a very popular neighbourhood known for its green space and out of the hustle and bustle of the big city. Bathurst Manor prices are now averaging over a million dollars for a property. We are still seeing a great deal of the buyers buying homes as infils and building a 2 storey larger home due to the larger lots in this area.
