On Wednesday, October 31, York Region will celebrate World Cities Day.

Great cities require strong planning, and with nine local cities and towns, York Region is committed to providing strong, caring and safe communities. As one of Canada’s largest Regional municipalities and the second largest business centre in Canada, York Region has innovative approaches in place to accommodate growth.

Our four Regional Centres in Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill and Vaughan, are new downtown areas and are identified as the primary place for urban growth in the Region. These Centres are hubs of economic and cultural activity that offer a high quality of life for residents and employees.

York Region’s Centres and Corridors Program was developed as an integrated approach to city-building. The approach combines planning for pedestrian friendly communities, together with the construction of transit options that connect our nine local cities and towns.

This program will continue to evolve these highly active urban areas that make them great places to live, work and play now, and into the future.

Which is important, because by 2041 York Region is expected to grow to approximately 1.8 million people and 900,000 jobs.

More people and more jobs require strong plans for growth, and that’s why York Region is reviewing and updating its Official Plan, through a process called the Municipal Comprehensive Review (MCR).

If you would like to get involved, or receive communications for these upcoming reports and consultation events related to the Municipal Comprehensive Review please contact futureyork@york.ca
