Welcome to Burlington, one of Canada's great cities. We are proud to have been named the second best city in Canada by MoneySense magazine.

We're located in the centre of the Golden Horseshoe, close to major highways, airports and the Canada-U.S. border.

Burlington's fortunate to have a beautiful waterfront on Lake Ontario, and a world biosphere, the Niagara Escarpment, in our backyard.

We're a cultural centre, with The Burlington Performing Arts Centre in our downtown. We're home to the Royal Botanical Gardens, and to Canada's musical ambassadors, the Burlington Teen Tour Band.

Each year, Burlington hosts Canada's largest Ribfest, and one of Ontario's top 10 festivals, the Sound of Music.

Burlington is an inclusive community, bringing people together to build our future. Our economy flourishes, and our parks and trails are second to none.
