Although American LaFrance Fire Engine Company (now called simply American LaFrance) is a U.S. company, there was also a Canadian plant in Toronto, Ontario until 1971.

This fire truck once belonged to the Borough of Etobicoke, now a dissolved municipality that forms the western part of the City of Toronto.
