Whether you’re moving for a job, to start fresh, or to grow your family, Milton is one of the best places to live in Canada.
With sweeping views of the escarpment and the convenience of being nestled between bigger cities like Toronto and Hamilton, there is never a shortage of things to discover in Milton.
In this blog, we’ll cover all the factors that make Milton so great, so you can make the best decision when you’re deciding on a place to live.
1. An Award-Winning City
There are a lot of factors that go into defining what makes a city a great place to live.
It needs to be prosperous, affordable, safe, easy to maneuver, good weather and outdoor activities, plenty of amenities, and close to larger cities.
Milton is all of those things packed into one.
And in 2016, Milton was recognized as one of Canada’s Best Places to Live, based on income, housing, weather, and low crime rates.
2. Family Friendly City
Choosing the right neighbourhood to raise your family in with the right schools, safe surroundings, and amenities is important.
Milton is one of the friendliest and safest cities in all of Ontario.
And in 2016, Milton was actually named one of Canada’s 10 best places to raise a family, based on safety, schools, and daycare prices.
3. Small Town Feel
If you’re looking for a tight-knit community with a hometown feel, look no further.
Although Milton is Canada’s fastest growing community, with a population growth of 30% in the last five years, it holds onto its small town roots.
From Old Milton’s historic sprawling 19th century homes to wide, open farm lands, and friendly, welcoming neighbours, as soon as you enter city limits, you will feel at home.
