Milton is one of Canada’s fastest growing cities in Canada – driven by improved transportation access and housing shortages/escalating-housing prices in the GTA. In the last ten years, Milton has experienced a dramatic increase in population from 53,000 in 2006 to 120,000 in 2016. Our forecast projects that by 2021 Milton will add another 49,000 people to its current count.
What is driving this population growth? Almost exclusively multicultural Canadians, particularly of South Asian heritage.
