Highland Creek is located in the easterly end of what was the City of Scarborough.Their own Mayor and Aldermen/Councilors were amalgamated into a large Municipal Corporation called The Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto.

Although now the City of Toronto, (fifth largest in North America) many community sub-names have remained…thus it is with Highland Creek – one of the oldest communities within the new Toronto.
The community of Highland Creek boundaries (a triangular area) are: the Highway 401 (MacDonald/Cartier Freeway) on the north, on the west, Morningside, south to The Highland Creek – follow the Creek to The Queen’s Highway #2A to the confluence with Highway 401. (See Map below)

Our home will stand as a beacon of long-term care for all, and fulfill our duty to those Canadian men and women who, in the face of an unspeakable fate, did the very same
