Bendale, also called Cedarbrae, is a residential neighbourhood in the eastern part of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located in the former suburb of Scarborough. It is centred on the intersection of Lawrence Avenue East and Brimley Road. Its boundaries, as defined by the City, are Midland Avenue from Lawrence, north to Highway 401, east to McCowan, south to Lawrence, east to West Highland Creek, south-west along West Highland Creek, then follow several side streets parallel to the Creek, north to Midland Avenue.

Description

The area is ethnically diverse, like much of Toronto, but prior to 2006, has had a higher influx of immigrants from South Asia than the rest of Toronto.[1]

A section of the neighbourhood is known as the "Ben Jungle", located north of Lawrence Avenue between McCowan and Bellamy Roads, where all the street names begin with Ben. Examples include:

  • Benleigh, Benshire and Ben Nevis Drives
  • Benfrisco, Benhur and Benorama Crescents
  • Benadair and Benprice Courts
  • Ben Stanton and Ben Doran Boulevards.

The street layout of Bendale discourages use of the streets as a thoroughfare by motorists or pedestrians as the main roads of McCowan, Lawrence Ave and Bellamy are more efficient.

Education

Secular schools in the area include Bendale Jr. P.S., North Bendale Jr. P.S., Edgewood P.S., Donwood J.P.S., Hunter's Glen J.P.S., Highbrook Learning Centre (formerly S.P.S.), Bendale Business and Technical Institute and David and Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute with the latter two to be merged

Separate schools in Bendale are St. Albert Catholic School, St. Victor Catholic School and St. Rose of Lima Catholic School. Its graduates attend Jean Vanier Catholic Secondary School just south of the neighbourhood.
