Bendale, also called Cedarbrae, is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Bendale is located in the eastern part of Toronto in Scarborough. The area is ethnically diverse like much of Toronto, but has a greater proportion of South Asian population, especially Tamils.[citation needed]

A section of the neighbourhood is known as the "Ben Jungle", located north of Lawrence Avenue between McCowan and Bellamy Roads, where all the street names begin with Ben. Examples include:

  • Benleigh, Benshire and Ben Nevis Drives
  • Benfrisco, Benhur and Benorama Crescents
  • Benadair and Benprice Courts
  • Ben Stanton and Ben Doran Boulevards.

The street layout of Bendale discourages use of the streets as a thoroughfare by motorists or pedestrians as the main roads of McCowan, Lawrence Ave and Bellamy are more efficient.

Schools in the area include Bendale Jr. P.S., North Bendale Jr. P.S., Bendale B.T.I., Cedarbrae Collegiate Institute, St. Nicholas Catholic School and St. Rose of Lima Catholic School.
