Richmond Hill is one of the most multicultural communities in the Greater Toronto Area. Richmond Hill is also one of the fastest growing municipalities in the Greater Toronto Area which is not surprising considering its close proximity to Toronto, and the fact that it is home to major employers including: Compaq Canada., Epson Canada, Levi Strauss, Lexmark Canada, and Suzuki Canada. The north-end of Richmond Hill known as Oak Ridges, is part of the environmentally significant Oak Ridges Moraine which is referred to as the “rain barrel of Ontario”. Ancient kettle lakes formed by the Moraine are significant landmarks in this part of the town. The largest of these is Lake Wilcox located at Bayview Avenue south of Bloomington Road. A public beach is located here.
