Etobicoke is situated in the existing City of Toronto within Ontario, Canada. It is a dissolved municipality which makes up the western part of the current city. In 2001, Etobicoke had a population of 338,117 as measured by the Census and this number changed based on the 2006 Census to approximately 334,500.

Etobicoke contains around 13 percent of Toronto's population and encompasses approximately 20% of the city's land area. On the south, the area is surrounded by Lake Ontario, on the west lies the Toronto Pearson International Airport, the City of Mississauga and Etobicoke Creek, although technically a small section of the airport extends into Etobicoke. On the north is Steeles Avenue West and on the east is Humber River.

The area referred to as Etobicoke has been occupied by different groups of First Nations peoples at different times during history. Slowly, the Algonquin's moved west from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Erie and it is thought they would have occupied the land at some point. At that time they were mostly located on the shores of Georgian Bay. The primary inhabitants of the north coast of Lake Ontario were the Huron-Wendat. It is believed that at some time throughout the 17th century, they were pushed out by the Iroquois or Haudenosaunee people.

A group referred to as the Three Fires, made up of Potawatomi Algonquin nations, the Odawa and the Ojibway was formed after much harassment from the south. They were able to ultimately push the Iroquois off the land. During 1695, the Mississaugas settled there. They took to hunting during the winter and spent their summertimes growing crops and fishing.

The name of "Etobicoke" originated from the Mississauga word "wah-do-be-kang" or wadoopikaang. This means the "place where the alders grow," and this description was used for the region between the Etobicoke Creek and Humber River.

There are numerous public parks in the region. Among the most famous is the James Gardens situated on the Humber River banks. This park has streams, walkways, waterfalls and seasonal flower display. This park is a popular location for graduation and wedding photos to be taken. One more well known park within Etobicoke is the Humber Bay Park.

The big community has the smallest population density among all the former cities which now make up Metro Toronto. In part, this is because of major industrial areas being expanded in Etobicoke. There are numerous major freeways in the region. This makes it a perfect hub for automobile based transportation. Unfortunately, public transit does not serve the region well because there are few rapid transit connections, even though there are numerous bus routes that do frequently serve the region.

There are numerous facilities in Etobicoke. Humber College, The University of Guelph-Humber, Sherway Gardens Shopping Centre, Woodbine Centre and Woodbine Race Track and Slots.
