Milton is pretty close to the Niagara Escarpment.
The Mattamy National Cycling Centre is pretty famous among cyclists in the country.
It is one of the fastest-growing communities in Ontario.
The town is widely popular among families.
It has four distinct seasons.
Milton is located in Southern Ontario and is part of the Halton Region in the GTA (the Greater Toronto Area). The town spreads over 365 square kilometres and is located 40 kilometres from Downtown Toronto via Highway 401. The town is close to the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO world biosphere reserve, and the Bruce Trail.
The town’s history starts beyond 1818, but the actual record for the town begins in 1836 when the locals named the area after their favourite author, John Milton. In 1853, the village of Milton was chosen as the location of the County of Halton. Finally, in 1857, the town was formally incorporated as a town, and George Brown became the first Mayor of Milton.
In the early ages, most of the settlers in the town were English, Irish, or Loyalists. That has now changed over time. The town is now home to multinationals such as South Asians, Africans, Filipinos, Arabs, and Americans. After English, the most common language spoken in the town includes Urdu, French, Arabic, Chinese, Punjabi, and Hindi.
Though the town is smaller than some neighbouring cities, including Toronto and Mississauga, it is still worthy of living, working, and raising a family.
Here are some of the top reasons for living in Milton. You may contact us to find out more about the town. We are always ready to help home sellers, buyers, investors, and renters.
The town’s housing market is pretty stable compared to Toronto. A semi-detached house in Toronto would cost you a lot less in Milton. You can even buy a detached house for the same price in Milton. The same goes for rental properties.
Though you will find more stand-alone homes than condo buildings in town, you still have plenty of options to choose from. You can also ask a local realtor if there are upcoming new condo projects where you may invest now to move in when the project is completed.
The transport system is pretty helpful if you are a frequent traveller between big cities like Toronto. You have access to Highway 401 to commute easily between connecting towns and cities. When you are not driving your vehicle, you may hop on a train or bus to commute between your destinations. Public transportation is managed by Milton Transit and includes GO Transit.
The town has a slightly better climate than Toronto and has all four seasons. The winters are icy, with temperatures falling as low as -7 degrees Celsius, but still better than Toronto. On the other hand, summers are also not too warm. But there could be days with heatwaves. So watch out for those.
One of the great things about Canada is its love for nature. Even though the country is growing and developing fast, the government and local authorities are trying to preserve nature as much as they can.
Starting with the unique recreational feature of the town, we have the Bruce Trail. It is a long hiking trail that spreads over 890 km. The base of the trail is less than a 15-minute drive from downtown Milton.
In addition to this trail, Milton also offers great spots for skiing and snowboarding. The Glen Eden ski area is one of those. The town offers more than these two spots, such as Conservation Halton, Crawford Lake Conservation Area, John Tonelli Sports Centre, and Rotary Park.
Two school boards manage public and Catholic schools. The Halton District School Board serves the public elementary and secondary schools, whereas the Halton Catholic District School Board serves Catholic elementary and secondary schools.
Some of the prominent public schools are Boyne Public School (elementary), Craig Kielburger Secondary School (secondary), and E. C. Drury School for the Deaf (elementary & secondary).
A few Catholic schools are Guardian Angels Catholic School (elementary), St. Francis Xavier Catholic Secondary School secondary), and Our Lady of Fatima Elementary School (elementary).
Besides public schools, there are a few private schools and french-medium schools in the town.
The significant industries driving Milton’s economy have been producing building materials such as lime, limestone, and bricks. Besides that, 3M Canada, Chudleigh's Limited, DSV Canada, Dufferin Aggregates Milton Quarry, Johnson Controls, Manheim Auto Auctions, Karmax Heavy Stamping, a division of Magna International, and Northstar Aerospace are a few names contributing to the town’s economy and offering thousands of employment opportunities.
Unlike a big city like Toronto, Milton might not be a great place to find work, but it is worth living in. Besides nature and a much more feasible housing market, it has all the amenities a person could wish for.
The town has a long sports history that is not easily found in other cities/towns. It has almost everything to offer sports fans, from badminton to tennis, baseball to cricket, and running to swimming.
Baseball is one of the oldest sports played and loved by the locals. It flourished as a “community tradition” in the 1920s. There are several parks, clubs, and grounds for all the sports actively played in the town.
