Humbermede, often called Emery, is a neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Humbermede, like many of the "Humber" neighbourhoods in the city, gets its name from the Humber River. It is bounded on the west by the Humber, on the north by Finch Avenue, on the east by the Highway 400 and on the south by Sheppard Avenue West.

Emery is a suburban low-density neighbourhood primarily consisting of semi-detached homes. There are some high-rises on the southwest corner of Finch and Weston Road. On the south-east corner is site of the former Finch West Mall. There is an industrial area along the rail lines, extending east to Highway 400.

Historical settlement of Emery

A farming hamlet developed by 1870 at the crossroads of Finch Avenue and Weston Road, named Dayton. A Dayton railway station at Finch Avenue and a Dayton post office were opened around that time. It was changed to Emery. One reason suggested for the change was to avoid confusion with Dayton, Ohio.[1] By 1960, the area started being converted to urban uses, as part of North York.
