New Tecumseth

Welcome to New Tecumseth

The Town of New Tecumseth was created in January 1991 and encompasses the former municipalities of the Town of Alliston, Villages of Beeton and Tottenham, and Tecumseth Township.

Richmond Hill

The Town of Richmond Hill started out as a small settlement located partially in the Township of Vaughan and partially in the Township of Markham. The Town's development was closely linked with the development of Yonge Street, which was planned primarily as a military road by John Graves Simcoe, the first Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of Upper Canada.  The Town was officially incorporated on June 18, 1872 as a village and the first council meeting was held on January 1, 1873 under the leadership of Abraham Law as Reeve. Richmond Hill developed because of its proximity to Toronto, as farmers came into town on their way to Toronto markets and people travelled up and down Yonge Street to and from communities further north.  Data from the recent census conducted by Statistics Canada indicated that Richmond Hill continues to be one of Canada's fastest growing municipalities. The Town's population exceeded 200,000 in 2014.  Over the years, Richmond Hill has remained a distinctive community, one of change yet with strong historical roots. Even during this time of most extensive growth to-date, Richmond Hill has remained a community with a friendly, down-to-earth flavour. That is why the Town's un-official motto is "A little north, a little nicer." 

Vaughan

The City of Vaughan is one of the fast growing municipalities in Canada. With a population of more than 320,000 people,Vaughan includes the communities of Concord, Kleinburg, Maple, Thornhill and Woodbridge.

Officially incorporated as a city in 1991, Vaughan was the first city in York Region. Its roots date back to the 1700s when the first townships were created. The City of Vaughan is a multicultural community where 99 different languages are spoken. According to the 2011 Census, 45 per cent of the population is comprised of immigrants, and visible minorities account for 27 per cent.

Vaughan has a rich history, and strong civic pride, and we are continuing to build a City we can all take pride in.
