Burlington is one of the Canada’s top cities to live in year after year, and for good reason! The mid-size city on the outskirts of the Greater Toronto Area offers beautiful trails for walking or biking, a great transit system, and a vibrant downtown core on the lake front at Lake Ontario. Burlington is the perfect place to start or raise a family or buy a first home, and the abundance of housing options makes moving here an easy choice.
Burlington is close enough to Toronto and Hamilton to have convenient access, but not so close that you get caught up in the traffic and bustle of big city life. But with all that Burlington has to offer, we think you won’t need to make the trip into Toronto very often!
5 years, and we’ve still got it!
Burlington has been ranked Canada’s top mid-sized city to live in five years in a row by MoneySense Magazine! This is no small feat since over 400 cities were compared in order to compile the data needed. Burlington’s excellent location in relation to the GTA and its abundance of world-class amenities makes it a shoo-in for the title. But it’s the overall high quality of living in regards to income level, employment rate, weather and the low crime rate that really cinch this status.
Condo developments on the rise
This mid-sized city is the perfect place to raise a family and to juggle that work/life balance. There are so many things to do within the city itself, and it is centrally located for any daytrips you might be interested in. Burlington also offers some great places to live, whether you’re looking for a condo, a detached or semi-detached home or a town home.
