Earlscourt, Toronto, Canada was a squatter settlement in the early 20th century and annexed by the old City of Toronto in 1910. It was initiallyi settled by British and Scottish immigrants. During World War I, the area had some of the highest enlistment rates in the British Empire. Several of the original settler shacks are still visible in the area.

Earlscourt was centred on St. Clair Avenue West, with Dufferin Street, Davenport Road, and Old Weston Road forming its boundaries. Currently the community is divided into Corso Italia (east of Lansdowne Ave.) and St. Clair Gardens (west of Caledonia Park Ave.).

The name Earlscourt lives on in Earlscourt Park located on the south side of St. Clair between Caledonia Park Road and Lansdowne Avenue.
