Known for being one of the safest and fastest-growing places in the country, it’s no surprise that Milton made an appearance on Canada’s “Best Small City” list.

While many people may remember Milton as a location for a school field trip, the Town has now grown to become a vibrant community with new developments constantly in the works to expand even further, making it a popular place to live in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

With a population of 138,495 and many popular outdoor destinations such as Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area and Area 8 (formerly known as the Kelso Quarry), the Town is also home to Glen Eden, a velodrome and an operational blacksmith shop.

While the Town came in at number eleven on the list, it was ranked second in its population growth subcategory since it projects the population to double by 2031.

According to the list, Milton residents are the fourth most educated in Canada and scored fourth for both creative class and employment rate.

The list also ranked Milton as the safest small city in Canada, with residents preferring to put their energy into infrastructures such as Mattamy National Cycling Centre or the other recreation centres in the Town.

The City of Burlington was the only other municipality in Halton that made the list, coming in at number seven.
