Rexdale, ON


PROUDLY SERVING • Rexdale, Toronto

Located within the former suburb of Etobicoke, Rexdale today stands as a district of Toronto and encompasses an area that includes several official neighbourhoods spanning east of Highway 427 and north of Highway 401. Centred on Islington Avenue and Rexdale Boulevard, the district was originally a post-World War II residential development within Etobicoke. The term “Rexdale” is today generally applied to an area spanning from Malton and Toronto Pearson International Airport in Mississauga to the west, the Humber River to the east, Steeles Avenue to the north and Highway 401 to the south.

Rexdale History

Historically, the first residents of Rexdale were mostly Scottish and English, though in the following decades the area evolved into a multicultural neighbourhood. It was actually named after Rex Heslop, a local real estate developer, who in 1955 purchased farmland in the area and installed sewers, streets and water mains, as well as a number of affordable houses. As a result of the homes selling well, the entire development soon saw more than 330 families living in it. Only a year later, more than 3,600 homes and over 70 different industries all called Rexdale home.

Nowadays, the district is where several interesting establishments are situated, such as the Woodbine Racetrack, the Woodbine Centre shopping mall, the University of Guelph-Humber, Humber College, as well as the Canadian Standards Association. Despite having a predominantly laid back character, this is an area of Toronto that always offers something to see and do. It also goes without saying that, much like with all urban areas, Rexdale is also home to a number of wildlife species as well. As a result of them taking up residency in crawl spaces, within attics and other areas of the home, there’s a chance you might need professional wildlife control services.

What to do in Case of Wildlife Problems

Among the species you might encounter in Rexdale, whether you live there or are just visiting, are some of the following: brown bats, raccoons, squirrels and skunks. There are no rules when it comes to whether or not a furry critter will seek shelter in or around your place of residence, but discovering an infestation can only mean one thing: you should not attempt to solve the problem yourself. Do not interact with wildlife no matter how cute and cuddly the invaders may seem. Instead, the recommended course of action involves always getting in touch with a certified and reputable humane wildlife control specialist.
