Kingsview Village is a neighbourhood in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located in the north end of the former city of Etobicoke, and is bounded on the north by Highway 401, on the east by the Humber River and St. Phillips Road, on the south by Dixon Road. It is relatively close to Toronto Pearson International Airport in Mississauga, and TTC bus routes connect it to the rest of the city.

   This neighbourhood is home to a multicultural diverse community originally settled by people from the British Isles that contains among others, a sizable Somali population as well as Italian, Asian, South Asian cultures. It has many religions but Islam is steadily on the increase. From single family homes to high rises, this is a diverse neighbourhood in all aspects.
   In some cases, single family homes built in the 1960s are being demolished, their generous sized lots subdivided to allow up to three homes on a parcel of land where one initially stood. Smaller homes may be razed and have a much larger home built on the site. A trend called "monster homes"
   Kingsview is a recent name for the residential development north of Dixon Road, on the site of land owned by Ernest Byworth.  The name 'Kingsview' is a reference to the neighbourhood's position on high ground.
