SCOKE is a unique neighbourhood located in the northwest corner of LPRO’s catchment area. It is a charming collection of just over 200 Homes on Saguenay, Caribou, Otter, Kimbark, Glen Willow and Edgecombe.

This neighbourhood features many mature trees, lush landscapes and a small ravine with a creek running through it. Newcomers to the area can’t help but feel that they have taken a surprise turn out of the city and into the country, with its winding curb free roads filled with rustic charm and picturesque, one-of-a-kind character homes. The residents who live here form a tight knit community, who look out for and protect one another and consider themselves fortunate to belong to such a caring and warm community.

SCOKE's Community Page will feature news of particular interest and relevance to the SCOKE area.  Residents who wish to post items of interest to our community in the categories below (or other) should send the information to Elise Hertz - scokena16@gmail.com. Please note that only non-commercial items will be posted on this page: no goods or services for sale or purchase.

Scams and Neighbourhood Crime

Scams and Neighbourhood Crime

We have had a number of Porch Pirate thefts in the SCOKE area and vicinity. If you have video footage that might assist in catching the perpetrators it can be submitted to Toronto Police.

Residents have been receiving letters regarding illegal driveway widening. They are asking for a fine of $500 in Bitcoin. This is a scam.
