Choosing the Right Community to Live In

Some websites have useful information about communities in Ontario. Many of these sites are created and maintained by municipal/city governments. Here are some useful links:

  • Cities and Towns – Certain cities have developed websites for newcomers who are already living there or who are thinking of moving there.
  • Municipal websites – Information about communities to see if you want to live there.
  • Statistical community profiles – Statistics Canada has a statistical profile of all communities in Canada from the 2006 Census data. It has information such as population size, the average number of people living in a home, and languages spoken.
  • Services Near Me – Go to “Search by Region” and select a region or city to find some basic information, such as geography, population, percentage of immigrants, and useful links.
