POPULATION INCREASE & ECONOMICAL OUTLOOK
Burlington’s population of around 187,000 people is expected to experience a substantial increase in the next 30 years, as the Halton Region aims to grow the population to over 1.1 million, representing an 85% surge from 2021. The region’s job opportunities are also set to rise to 500,000, making it an ideal place for people to live, work, and play. With the growing population and job opportunities, housing demand is likely to soar, leading to an increase in both real estate values and rental rates.
CONNECTIVITY & TRANSPORTATION
Burlington is highly accessible, with convenient connections to the QEW and Highways 403 and 407, as well as three GO Transit stations. Travelling to the edge of Toronto takes only 18 minutes, and Union Station is less than 30 minutes away (excluding traffic). Additionally, Pearson Airport is less than 30 minutes away, and the US Border is only an hour’s drive away, making Burlington a prime location for real estate investment.
