East York Collegiate Institute is a Toronto high-school located in the former borough of East York at the corner of Coxwell and Cosburn Avenues. Established in 1927, the school was originally known as East York High School, but it soon merged with a local vocational school and extended the building capacity; it gained its current name a decade later.

Like Ephraim, he feeds upon the East wind, which has no boundaries.”
—Vance Palmer (18851959)
