Maps elsewhere: Religious affiliation
|RENÉ JOHNSTON/TORONTO STAR|
However, the patterns they show shed light on how religion intersects with Toronto neighbourhoods.
Roman Catholics show a strong pattern roughly along Dufferin, then more northwest north of the 401.
Anglicans cluster along Yonge Street and shoreline Scarborough, while Presbyterians and United Church affiliations have roughly similar maps, clustering in mid-Etobicoke, the Yonge St. corridor, and shoreline Scarborough.
The city’s Jewish population clusters strongly along Bathurst north of St. Clair. Muslims concentrate roughly along Taylor’s Creek and the area to the north from Thorncliffe Park east into Scarborough.
People with no religious affiliation cluster in the downtown lake shore generally, and also south of Steeles from eastern North York into Scarborough.
It is a pity we have to wait until after the 2011 census to see how, or if, these patterns change.
