Islington is a neighbourhood in the west end of Toronto, formerly Etobicoke in Ontario, Canada. It was originally a village in the Township of Etobicoke, which later became the Borough of Etobicoke, and then the City of Etobicoke. Etobicoke merged with five other municipalities and a regional government in 1998 to form the new "City of Toronto".
The approximate modern boundaries of Islington are Rathburn Road in the north, Islington Ave in the east, The Queensway in the south and a block west of Kipling Avenue in the west.

Islington was originally known as Mimico. When Mimico-on-the-Lake petitioned the government for a new post office to be called Mimico in 1858, Mimico was renamed Islington, a name suggested by a resident who was born in the English city of the same name (see Islington).
