Driftwood Avenue is a residential thoroughfare in the heart of Jane and Finch in Toronto, Canada. Running north/west from Finch Ave. West to Jane Street, Driftwood is home to many high-rises and clustered rows of subsidized housing separated by middle-class houses. Driftwood Court is located closer to Jane Street, north of Finch Ave. West and has been the scene of many gang related shootings over the past years. Driftwood Court is a geared to income community inhabited by many new Canadians, most prevalent being those of Caribbean and Hispanic decent. Police claim that this area had long been territory claimed by the Crips (much like most of the Ontario Housing communities north of Finch Ave. West) who have on-going tensions with communities south of Finch Ave. West. Driftwood Avenue has become separated into two distinct sections by its residence (mainly among the youths) due to past conflicts between gangs from neighbouring housing complexes:

Up-Top: Comprises anything north of Finch Ave. West, particularly the housing complexes on Driftwood Ave., Driftwood Court, Shoreham Court, and Gosford Blvd.

Southside: Anything south of Finch Ave. West, including the housing on Driftwood Avenue at Grandravine Rd., Yorkwoods Gate, Firgrove Cres., Yellowstone St., and The Grassways.
