Mayor's Message

Mayor Ryan

Pickering is poised to become one of the premier municipalities in the province. The Government of Ontario has named our downtown an 'Urban Growth Centre' and an 'Anchor Mobility Hub'. Together, our landmark pedestrian bridge and 'LEED-Silver' office tower form the epicentre of our downtown revitalization. Over the next 20 years, Pickering will lead the Greater Toronto Area in growth with an additional 70,000 residents and 35,000 jobs. Economic development remains one of our key priorities, and I commit to working with you to make your expansion or relocation to Pickering as effortless and profitable as possible.

- Dave Ryan, Mayor
