Although the City of Hedged Communities is nestled among other urban "Cities" close to Toronto's core, it's been placed within a different category due to a few key reasons. Whereas the surrounding cities feature lots of apartment buildings, non-family households, a strong diversity of cultures and linguistic backgrounds and a mix of income brackets, the neighbourhoods of Hedged Communities are generally home to relatively well-off homeowner families living in single detached homes. Many of these neighbourhoods are associated with established wealth, and line up with David Hulchanski's wealthier City #1 in his well known study of Toronto's Three Cities, which examined growing income inequality across the city. Even though these communities lie directly within the heart of Toronto, these communities have a lot more in common with some of the GTA's suburban areas.
