Abstract

The impact of industrial decentralization on settlement patterns can be traced by using published data in city directories regarding the evolution of labor sheds and employment fields. A case study of Toronto, using directories and oral histories, shows that the decentralization of employment was only one influence upon suburban settlement. Men were affected more than women, because of the concentration of housing and job opportunities for women in the downtown. Decentralization enabled companies to exploit suburban male workers and suburbanization disadvantaged women
