Niagara is a Toronto neighbourhood located south of Queen Street West and is bordered by Strachan Avenue to the west, Bathurst Street to the east, and the railway corridor to the south, It is called Niagara because Niagara Street runs through the centre of it.

The Niagara neighbourhood has a rich history that dates back to 1793, when it was part of a military garrison for the fledgling Town of York. Old Fort York is still standing on Garrison Road, between Bathurst Street and Strachan Avenue. In the 1850's, it transitioned into a prominent industrial centre.
