Welcome to Burlington
The City of Burlington is home to more than 150,000 residents. The south-end of Burlington is situated on the picturesque shores of Lake Ontario, while the majestic Niagara Escarpment provides the backdrop for the northwest part of Burlington. Burlington is strategically located right in the middle of the “Golden Horseshoe”, which encompasses the prosperous, urbanized area, between Oshawa and St. Catherines.
Burlington has all the amenities you would expect from a large city. It has the Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, a myriad of shopping destinations, an excellent housing mix, an abundance of recreational amenities, its own municipal transit system, and outstanding transportation corridors including highways 407 and 403, as well as the Queen Elizabeth Way, which all wind their way through Burlington.
