Long Branch, Ontario

Long Branch is a former village that is now part of the City of Toronto, Ontario.

The area is bounded by Lake Ontario on the south, Etobicoke Creek to the west, the CNR railway to the north and Kipling Avenue to the east.

In 1967 the village was amalgamated with the Township of Etobicoke and the villages of New Toronto and Mimico to form the Borough of Etobicoke (later the City of Etobicoke, 1984). In 1998, the Etobicoke was merged with five other municipalities and the regional government to form the new City of Toronto.

Prominent reeves of the village included Len Ford and Marie Curtis.
