Whitby has been ranked by Maclean’s Magazine as one of the Best Communities in Canada. The Town received high scores for its amenities, weather, culture and community – ranking 55 out of the 415 municipalities compared across Canada. In addition to being a best community, Whitby was also ranked as the 28th Best Place to Raise a Family.
“These scores recognize what those of us who live here already know – that Whitby is one of the best communities in Canada,” said Mayor Don Mitchell. “From our waterfront and more than 120 parks to our first-class recreation facilities and growing number of entertainment destinations – and everything in between – Whitby is a great place to live, work and raise a family.”
