The Durham Advantage

Durham Region is situated at the eastern gateway of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and offers prime access to Canada’s largest market of more than five million people and 135 million more American and Canadian consumers.

Durham’s land, location, people, infrastructure and balanced living offer a highly skilled labour force, diverse economic base, superior quality of life and competitive business costs.

Durham Region is made up of eight municipalities ranging from large, urban centres to small towns, hamlets and villages. These include the cities of Oshawa and Pickering; the towns of Ajax and Whitby; the Municipality of Clarington; and the townships of Brock, Scugog and Uxbridge.

Key sectors include advanced manufacturing; agri-business; digital technology; smart energy; film; small business; and tourism, which are well supported by strong industry networks and economic development partners at the municipal, provincial and federal government levels.

We invite you to explore and invest in Durham Region, and take advantage of the opportunities this dynamic region has to offer.
