Pleasant View is a neighbourhood in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada that is located in the district of North York at the northern end of the city. It is bordered by Victoria Park to the East, Sheppard Avenue to the South, Highway 404 to the west and the Finch hydro corridor to the north (north of Finch Avenue).

This has become a popular area for immigrants and has a large number of Chinese arriving and settling in the area. The area also has a sizeable Italian and Greek population, among others.

There is a huge percentage of house ownership in the area and the neighbourhood would be classified as middle income, with people on both ends of that spectrum.

Animal lovers can take their pets to Bowhill Animal Clinic.

Across from the Van Horne Plaza is a twin tower community by the Schickedanz team. The Clipper buildings are home to many Pleasant View residents and is said to be the focal point of the community.
