Lifestyle

Life is good in Vaughan.

Most Vaughan residents have lived here for more than 10 years. They stay because Vaughan offers economic opportunities, safe and inclusive neighbourhoods and lots of recreation opportunities.

Established communities like Kleinburg, Woodbridge, Thornhill and Maple offer quaint main streets with classic suburban homes up to luxury estates. Vaughan’s emerging downtown — the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre — is where you can live the city life with high rise condos, easy transit access and a quick walk to work in one of the new office towers.
