Vaughan

Vaughan is one of the fastest-growing cities in Ontario

Welcome to Vaughan

The type of city in which you want to plant roots.

 

With a population of 307,000 residents, Vaughan is one of the fastest-growing cities in Ontario. Vaughan comprises five separate communities: Woodbridge, Maple, Thornhill, Concord, and Kleinburg. Though each community has distinct qualities, they all have a strong sense of community, close access to nature, and excellent schools.

Vaughan was officially incorporated as a city in 1991, making it the first city in the York Region. Currently, a downtown area is being renovated to include transit mobility, green spaces and parks, office and condo towers, pedestrian links, retail, and entertainment.

The styles of homes vary from neighbourhood to neighbourhood. In Kleinburg, you’ll find a mix of heritage homes built during the 19th century and recently developed estates, while Weston Downs has detached homes on large lots, and Maple features magnificent homes. These are just a few examples of the homes you will find in Vaughan’s various communities.
