Beechborough-Greenbrook is a neighbourhood in the city of Toronto, Canada. It is located in the former City of York and is bordered by Greenbrook Drive to the north, the Canadian National Railway rail line to the east, Eglinton Avenue West to the south and another CN rail line to the west. The neighbourhood contained the central commercial district for the former City of York along Eglinton Avenue where the York Civic Centre, which housed York's municipal offices, is located.

The neighbourhood has a large number of Roman Catholics many of whom are Italian and Portuguese by descent. However the neighbourhood is very diverse and includes many Baptists, Buddhists and other Christians. Latin Americans, Blacks and Southeast Asians are also well represented in this neighbourhood (source: Statistics Canada 2001).

Nearly two-thirds of the neighbourhood's population resides in rental units, many of them in low-rise apartment buildings. Due to the low income in the area, there are an above average number of renters and rental units.
