The Toronto Language Map is an interactive resource that allows users to explore Toronto’s evolving linguistic diversity over the past decade. Using 2006, 2011 and 2016 census data, this resource reveals the changing linguistic makeup of the city based on the languages that residents speak most often at home.

1 The colourful opening map shows the top non-official languages spoken most often at home for each census tract across the city. Roll your mouse over the map to see the top language. Click on an area to find out the most frequently spoken home languages in the area. Search for an address with the tool at the bottom of the map. (Include the city name “Toronto” in your search.)
2 To pick a home language, use the thin grey scroll bar on the right side of the box where the languages are listed. Over 20 languages are included. Click on the teardrop button next to a language to see where people live who speak that language most often at home. The darker the colour the higher the percentage of residents who speak that language most often at home.
3 On the bottom of the map, change the year to see home language maps for 2006, 2011 and 2016.
