Maclean’s has rated Burlington “Canada’s Best Community” and “Best Community in Canada For Families”. Over 400 cities were judged on a number of factors, including wealth and economy, commute, crime, amenities and culture.
These top rankings are badges of honour for us, as we’ve worked hard to make our city a destination of choice for both businesses and families.
We appreciate you considering us for your business or expansion. Here’s what we can provide for you:
Easy Access for Your Staff, Suppliers and Clients
You’ll find our city remarkably accessible via multiple highways, provincial transit, international and private airports, rail networks, sea ports and land border crossings.
An Exceptional City Hall Experience
Our friendly and dedicated City Hall team members will guide you through the city’s regulatory processes, while taking a solutions-oriented approach to all business requests.
A Proven Track Record for Development
In 2019, we helped drive over 100 new business and company expansions including the construction of a new 47,000 square foot facility for Endress+Hauser’s new Customer Experience Centre.
New Business Incentives: A Spotlight on New Business
You can realize that office or facility you’ve always dreamed of; we’re offering lucrative incentives for redevelopment of brownfield sites in select urban areas, ones with high growth potential.
A Workforce Powerhouse
One of the highest educated workforces in the region, 4.5 million workers within commuting distance, and a country that welcomes immigrants from over 150 countries means you’ll have an exceptionally large, diversified workforce to source talent from.
Sustainable & Safe
You’ll be living, working and playing in one of the safest municipalities in Canada, a city that is home to vibrant neighbourhoods and countless parks, activities and attractions. In addition, more than half of Burlington is greenbelt used for agriculture, natural heritage and recreational purposes. We are also working to be net carbon neutral by 2050.
