No, see my question in your other post.

Quaint town not to far from the airport?

We need more details, what do want to do?

Neither Grimsby or Woodbridge are quaint. Woodbridge is a sprawling suburban area north of Toronto. Grimsby is equally afflicted by urban sprawl, but is closer to Niagara Falls and the Niagara wine region.

Really need a lot more information:

Woodbridge is anything but quaint. Suburban sprawl with lots of traffic.

There are no quaint towns close to Pearson Airport. It is in the middle of the largest urban area in Canada.

Usually people coming to Toronto come to see the city. It doesn't really work to stay in the suburbs and commute in, unless you are a glutton for punishment. If you want a quaint town, you'll have to go pretty far; maybe Kingston, Picton, Port Hope...you"ll need a car and they'll be very quiet in November, which is usually grey and rainy. There are many neighborhoods in Toronto that, while not quaint, are charming and pleasant: Beaches, Cabbagetown, Roncey, among others.
