Branson is located along Finch avenue, west of Bathurst Street and east of the west branch of the Don River. Westminster is located just to the north, across the Westminster Cemetery. It is also known as Fisherville, after the former town on the site. It stretches north to Steeles Avenue, and the northern border of Toronto.
This area is overwhelmingly populated by the Russian-speaking and, to a lesser extent, Ukrainian-speaking segments of Toronto, especially immigrants from the former Soviet Union's Jewish minority, many of whom immigrated to Canada by way of Israel. The dominant ethnicities of the area are Jewish, Russian and Filipino.
