Why would I recommend Burlington as a “Perfect Place to Live”? Well for lots of reasons…

  • Its Clean and Green!
  • The people are friendly and kind!
  • Economically sound!
  • The Education system is awesome!
  • Easy Commute to Toronto! Physically, Burlington lies between the north shore of Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment, at the western end of Lake Ontario.
  • We have some really cool events and attractions which include Canada’s Largest Ribfest, Sound of Music Festival, Burlington Art Centre, and Spencer Smith Park! Royal Botanical Gardens is close as well as its proximity to a part of the Niagara Escarpment in the north that includes the Iroquoian section of the Bruce Trail all will appeal to Nature lovers!

We have so much to offer… I would love to help you find a fabulous home here in our wonderful community of Burlington… which Oh, by the way… was rated the 2nd best City in Canada.
