As the eastern gateway to the GTA, Pickering is strategically located where Toronto, York and Durham Regions meet.  By 2031, our population is expected to grow from 94,000 to 190,000 residents.  An integrated transportation network of high capacity roads, rail, and air provide time and money saving access to major markets across North America and beyond.

Pickering's diverse businesses range from world-class industrial to professional services and retail.  Business costs are among the lowest in the GTA and are globally very competitive. Draw from a labour force of nearly 6 million across the Greater Toronto area, many of whom are highly skilled professionals from many fields.

Available land and space awaits your strategic investment. Whether in one of our mature business parks, our emerging City Centre, or breaking ground in our Seaton employment lands, Pickering is the place to invest in your business future.
