Whitby residents choose to live here because the Town offers a lifestyle like no other in Ontario. The best of both worlds are right here: the tranquility of the waterfront along the shores of Lake Ontario and easy access to Toronto's business and entertainment district.
Whitby Harbour and the Town's parks and green spaces offer a cottage-like lifestyle, with a enviable quality of life. The waterfront trail, from Whitby Harbour to Intrepid Park at the Oshawa border, is a major attraction for walkers and cyclists. Well established neighbourhoods, steeped in history, offer residents everything from great shopping to accessible transit, and an extensive choice of recreational facilities, programs, and arts and culture to suit all interests.
Whitby strives to meet the diverse needs of its growing population. The Town demonstrates a strong commitment to residents of all ages, from youth to older adults through its designated facilities, activity centres, and programs. Known for its friendliness and numerous events that promote community involvement, Whitby makes residents and newcomers alike feel welcome and an integral part of community life.
