The City of Markham is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Ontario and the most ethnically diverse community in Canada. The City has earned distinction for strong economic growth and enviable livable facilities and spaces.
Markham has been identified as a growth centre in the Greater Toronto Area by the Ontario Places to Grow Act, and their projections indicate Markham’s population will increase by 35 per cent in the next 16 years. The City of Markham is well prepared for this growth through our strategic plan – Building Markham’s Future Together. The plan’s four strategic priorities – Exceptional Services by Exceptional People, Engaged, Diverse and Thriving City, Safe and Sustainable Community, Stewardship of Money and Resources – will ensure a balanced and sustainable approach to the growth of our community.
