New Toronto sits on the north shore of Lake Ontario and has had a turbulent history. It was established in 1890 and designed to be an industrial town. When the Grand Truck Railway set up shop there in 1906, brought an influx of industrial businesses. New Toronto rapidly grew and soon became an independent municipality in 1913. Among the industrial companies to move to New Toronto was the Goodyear Tire plant in 1917. They would become the largest employer in New Toronto until they closed in 1987. Today, the industrial corridor has been turned into a residential district and the neighborhood has become a mix of cultures and incomes. Professionals are being drawn to the new home development and they are mixing with a large senior population consisting of Ukrainian and Polish immigrants. These days the Lakeshore Village shopping district is a popular on-location set for many TV shows and movies.
