Downtown Markham will showcase the finest artworks from galleries and artists for display in public spaces throughout the community for residents, visitors, shoppers, employees and all to share.

MARKET OVERVIEW

Markham in the Greater Toronto Area

The Town of Markham is located in the centre of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) consisting of 29 municipalities and regions and is home to over 5 million people. Strategically located in the heart of the GTA and just north of the City of Toronto, the region is well served by a network of 400 series highways. Highways 404 and 400 provide north-south access and the toll Highway 407 provides east-west access through the region. The large supply of serviced commercial and residential development land will continue to allow York Region to grow long into the future.

High Tech Capital

Markham has become known as the ‘high tech capital’ of Canada. More than 400 corporate offices and over 900 high technology and life science companies have chosen to locate in Markham. The employment generated by the high tech and life science sectors account for over a quarter (31,000) of the current total employment of 137,000. The combination of high quality facilities, easy highway access, a highly educated workforce and a pro-business environment has made Markham home to many world-renowned corporations like IBM, American Express, Motorola, and Honeywell to name a few.

Markham has emerged from being a bedroom community to one of only five municipalities which were net importers of labor in the entire GTA. With over 137,000 jobs in Markham and a total labor force of 111,600 (2006 Census), 37,770 reported they worked locally. This means there is a large in-flow of workers from other areas of the GTA. This trend is supported by recent traffic studies that show the increase in the reverse commuting out of the City of Toronto to Markham. Based on a 2001 study, the outflow commute has reached a level of approximately 70% of the peak in-bound traffic flow.
