Milton is one of the fastest-growing communities in Canada, and an incredible place to call home.

The proof is in the people and the businesses that have chosen to thrive here. Milton’s high quality of life, breathtaking natural landscapes, and world class amenities have attracted a very special population of young, highly educated, diverse individuals and families, as well as many dynamic businesses.

Milton’s strong sense of community is a source of pride. Residents and visitors alike arrive in droves to experience the Downtown Milton Street festival and seasonal farmer’s market, as well as opportunities to enjoy high performance sport at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre and outdoor exploration in Conservation Halton parks and trails.

Centrally located in the nucleus of the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor, Milton is also home to a growing population of entrepreneurs. The opening of Halton Region and Haltech partner offices at the Milton Education Village (MEV) Innovation Centre, are a shining example of initiatives undertaken to support the growth of Milton’s knowledge economy.

Milton is a place of possibility. With the vision for a post-secondary campus becoming a reality, a Downtown revitalization project well underway, and the development on an urban park on the horizon that will be a rare gem in the region, Milton’s future is one to take note of.

As the population and workforce continue to grow, Milton will remain a complete community, and an amazing place to live and work for years to come.
Gordon A. Krantz, Mayor
