Welcome to Halton (video)

Whether you enjoy the rural backdrop of the Niagara Escarpment or the picturesque views of a charming downtown street, Halton Region maintains a diverse landscape for both residents and visitors looking for the perfect blend of urban and rural scenery.

Did you know that Halton has over 25 kilometres of waterfront property and is home to Canada’s largest botanical garden? Also, did you know that there are only 16 classified UNESCO World Biosphere Reserves in Canada and the Niagara Escarpment is one of them? Or, were you aware there are over 10 kilometres of natural footpaths to uncover at Bronte Creek Provincial Park? These are only some of the many offerings that contribute to Halton Region’s rich quality of life.

Located less than an hour’s drive from Toronto and Niagara, we are fortunate to experience the shift of the seasons and enjoy the many activities that go along with a new time of year. In Halton you can visit a local farm in the fall and go apple picking, enjoy exceptional winter skiing and snowboarding at Glen Eden, spend a spring afternoon shopping and dining along the lakeshore or take in a summer festival under the sun. No matter what your preference, there’s something for everyone in Halton.

I invite you to check out our recently updated Welcome to Halton video and see why Halton is such a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
