CITY GUIDE
PICKERING, ONTARIO

Pickering is one of the smaller cities in Ontario, occupying a land area of roughly 230 square kilometres with a population of around 88,000 people.

Although it may not be big now, many are projecting that the population will be close to 200,000 by 2030.

Its slow growth to date can be attributed to certain restrictions set by the city on developing properties in the northern region of the city.

With four nuclear reactors that have been in place since the early 1970s, energy generation has become a huge part of the economy that is driving Pickering’s growth.

However, with decommissioning set to take place in 2020, the city had to find alternate sources of economic growth and stability.

This is why there has been a large takeover by employers in the manufacturing industry, particularly for pharmaceuticals and electronics.

In the past decade or so, Pickering has picked up traction as one of the best places in Canada for starting and growing a business.

With direct access to major Canadian highways, some of the lowest business tax rates in the Greater Toronto Area, an incredibly skilled labour force that is large in volume, and (almost ironically) the amount of vacant land and space available, expect to see significant growth and development of Pickering’s economy as businesses from all sectors fight to establish a location in this small city.

Entertainment

Don’t let Pickering’s sub-100,000 population and small land size fool you because there are lots of things to do and see in this city! The recreational complexes and city parks are host to several events over the course of the year. The city updates its website with a new calendar each month so that citizens can know what is going on at a park or arena near them. There is strong incentive to keep up to date as some of the events, such as the Rotary Ribfest and Pickering Farmer’s Market, are seasonal and only happen once a year.

There are a large number of hiking trails and cycling paths available to those who are looking for some outdoor activities to engage in. Four different golf courses are available for those who want to take a shot at yet another challenging round of 18 holes. Finally, there are small local boutiques that sell some fascinating items. Good luck finding them elsewhere!

Neighbourhoods

Neighbourhoods

Pickering consists of a total of 14 neighbourhoods. Due to the small size of Pickering in terms of land area occupied, most residents view Pickering as having an Eastern region and a Western region.

Neighbourhoods

East

The eastern region consists of the neighbourhoods of Liverpool, Town Center, Bay Ridge, Brock Industrial, Village East, and Brock Ridge. Residents are nearby to several of the public parks within Pickering and many of the city’s major transportation routes: public transit, Highway 401, etc. There are also several restaurants and bars nearby for those who want close access to places where they can eat out for the night. These neighbourhoods enjoy a vibrant nightlife and busy traffic during the workday, which explains the high presence of young professionals and white-collar workers within these communities.

West

Rouge Park, Highbush, Rougemont, Rosebank, West Shore, Woodlands, Amberlea, and Dunbarton are the neighbourhoods that make up West Pickering. While close access to the city’s amenities is provided to the inhabitants of these neighbourhoods, the majority of the outdoor activities and natural green spaces are located here. Golf courses, hiking trails, campsites, and much more are at the fingertips of West Pickering’s neighbourhoods.

Real Estate Market

One of the reasons that Pickering comes highly recommended by businessmen is the incredibly high quality of life that each and every part of the city provides. Cultural diversity, extremely low crime rates, well-maintained parks and much more are just some of the reasons that Pickering’s real estate market is starting to pick up some serious traction.

East Pickerington is home to an eclectic mix of properties. You can expect to find apartments available for rent at a fair price, low-rise and high-rise condos for all budget sizes, semi-detached townhomes, fully detached residential homes, fully attached townhomes, and the occasional bungalow. These homes are varied in age, yet most of them have a modern finish on both the exterior and interior. Many people pride these homes not just for their looks, but also for their close locations to several of the main amenities within the city.

West Pickerington differs from the eastern region in that it tends to be more suburban in nature. Most of the homes that you will see here include detached properties, semi-attached townhomes, and the occasional land lot for bigger properties that occupy several thousands of square feet. This area tends to be far more reserved in terms of activity, which leads to neighbourhoods that are mostly quiet. This seems to be the preferred option for those who are raising large families.
