Halton Region comprises the city of Burlington and the towns of Oakville, Milton, and Halton Hills. This region can trace its origins back to 1853 when it was known as Halton County. The railway has always played an important role in Halton’s growth. That is still true today as the Go Transit railway connects commuters all over the Greater Toronto Area. The municipalities of Oakville and Burlington straddle the shores of Lake Ontario and comprise the bulk of Halton’s urban area. Milton is one of the fastest growing municipalities in the GTA. The Town of Halton Hills has a rural ambiance and charm with quaint villages and towns.
NeighbourhoodGuide.com would like to acknowledge the original stewards of the land, the Mississauga’s, the Anishnaabe, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. It is because of them that we have the opportunity to appreciate the forest, the water and the animals that inhabit these lands. Residing on their traditional territories under the Silver Covenant Chain, and Treaties 13, 19 and 20, it is important that we commit and work with Indigenous People to understand our mutual responsibility of ongoing stewardship of the lands on which we learn, share and live. Let this responsibility guide our decisions to be beneficial to all concerned, including future generations so that they too can benefit from and experience this beautiful place.”
