Reasons You'll LOVE it:

5 Reasons You'll HATE it:

small town feel

Feels like a small town, but still near bigger towns and Toronto for quick trips.

fewer amenities

Aside from the basics, you’ll have to drive to a bigger center like Newmarket or Uxbridge to shop.

road trip!

Who’s ready for some epic country road trips?! You won’t have to look too far to find a great route to enjoy.

poor public transit

You’ll definitely need a car unless you plan on staying close to your neighborhood. Public transit is almost non-existent in many regions of EG.

home prices

Larger lots and comparatively lower property prices in some areas of EG.

public services

Because EG is spread out, public services such as the library and recreation centers may not be easily accessible.

fast growing community

EG is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Canada. That means improved infrastructure and projects that benefit the community such as the Health and Active Living Plaza scheduled to open in 2025 and the Mount Albert Downtown Revitalization project to be completed in 2026.

REASON 4

Because EG is spread out, public amenities such as the library and recreation centers may not be easily accessible.

REASON 5

This growing municipality is attracting new businesses and employers, the biggest of which is a state-of-the-art logistics and distribution center spanning 1.2 million sq. ft. on Woodbine Ave., situated just north of Green Lane. This facility will potentially create up to 1,000 new employment opportunities.
