Originally established as a farming village, the Halton Region town of Milton, Ontario has preserved its agricultural roots and dedication to nature. The city is home to a popular farmer’s market and a Heritage Park that showcases farming life in Ontario’s early years. The UNESCO biosphere reserve park on the Niagara Escarpment has fostered general interest in nature conservation, and today Milton has a multitude of parks, campgrounds, and wildlife preserves. These features plus annual community events like the Steam Era Festival and the Milton Fall Fair have made the city popular with tourists. Residents enjoy showing off their town to visitors. Many of them work in hospitality and tourism, though manufacturing and distribution are the city’s largest industries.
More people commute elsewhere for work than are employed in Milton, so the municipal government works hard to keep their town connected with the rest of the GTA. Three highways pass through the city: the 401, the 407, and the old Highway 25, all of which provide easy access to Toronto, Burlington, Oakville and Hamilton by car. Milton public transit buses connect the various parts of the town with each other and also link up with commuter transit routes like the GO Train, which has its western terminus in town. There are also two freight railways and one passenger railway with service to Milton and Pearson International Airport is less then 40km away.
As a suburban community, many of Milton’s households contain school-aged children, so the school system gets a lot of attention from involved parents and the government to ensure it can meet the needs of a growing community. The Halton District School Board handles secular grade school education while its opposite number, the Halton District Catholic School Board, handles religious education. Both receive public funding. There are also several private schools, some secular, some nondenominational Christian, that parents can choose instead for students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8. One of them even has an attached equestrian center.
Should you or your family be affected by accident or illness, it’s the Milton District Hospital that will set you right again. More than 37,000 patients make use of its services each year. Even the hospital reflects Milton’s rural roots, as it sits on a 30 acre lot. Milton Hospital has the capability to handle all your day-to-day needs in general medicine, continuing care, obstetrics, and basic surgery. The emergency room is always open, and any patients with complex or severe cases that Milton Hospital’s facilities aren’t able to accommodate can be whisked quickly away to major Toronto hospitals via ambulance or helicopter.
