WHY WE LOVE PICKERING
This city, located just east of Toronto, has all of the amenities and services that a big city has to offer, but with small-town charm. Families and businesses are attracted to Pickering for its diversity, quality of life, and natural beauty. With both lakefront and greenspace, Pickering is a destination for visitors year round, and is currently undergoing major development projects designed to further attract residents and businesses. Though the city is experiencing significant growth, it’s considered a safe, connected and welcoming place to live.
Pickering has direct access to major highways, a large GO train station with regular departure and arrival times, and many stops along the Durham Region Transit route. Some of the development projects currently underway affect the city’s roads, street lighting and traffic signals, with the goal of enabling people to move through Pickering’s neighbourhoods safely and with ease.
