Nah, it's a fair distance. Neighborhoods in Toronto tend to change quickly.

Downtown generally refers to the area between Bloor street and the
lakeshore, with the major concentration being between the Yonge and
University/spadina subway lines. (Subway lines are all named after the
streets they go below). It kind of extends beyond that, but that would
be the core. area.

I think it'd be about an hour by city transit between the downtown
area and the Humber area, so I agree that this is a good plan.
