Hillcrest Village is a neighbourhood located at the northernmost tip of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Hillcrest Village is considered by some to be part of the Don Valley Village, the neighbourhood directly to the south, however it is quite distinct. It is bordered by Finch to the South, Leslie Street to the West, Steeles to the North and Victoria Park to the East. Both neighbourhoods share the Don Valley as a point of reference in the Eastern border of the neighbourhoods.

Hillcrest Village is home to one of Toronto's most popular Chinese areas. The top ethnicity in the area if by far Chinese and most recent immigrants to the area continue to arrive from China, Hong Kong and Korea. While there is social housing in the area and a large percentage of residents on low income there is equally a large number of residents earning in the top tax brackets. The 75%+ ownership rate is another indicator of the transition this neighbourhood continues to make.

The Don Valley provides an interesting hillside landscape in the East end of the neighbourhood. In conjunction with Duncan Creek and numerous parks the area has some natural splendour to enjoy.

Public transit in this area currently is only bus routes operated by the TTC, including the 42 Cummer, 53 Steeles East, 51 Leslie, 25 Don Mills, 39 Finch East, and 24 Victoria Park bus routes. As well, the proposed Don Mills LRT will run through this neighbourhood.
