Town of Aurora, Ontario

Competitive Advantages

Aurora is located in fast growing York Region, in the heart of Canada's economic engine, the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and has great connections to national and international markets by road, rail and air.

With direct access to Highway 404, Aurora is 30 minutes from downtown Toronto and less than 20 minutes to Highways 401 and 407, Southern Ontario's major expressways. Our community also features convenient access to Lester B. Pearson International Airport (45 minutes) and Buttonville Regional Airport (15 minutes), and is well served by the Canadian National Railway (CNR).

An expanded public transportation system that includes buses, rapid transit and trains (GO Transit, VIVA and York Region Transit) makes all-day commuting easy to all parts of the GTA.

Over half the population of the USA and Canada lives within one day's drive of the Town of Aurora and the U.S. border is just 90 miles (144 km) away.

Aurora combines the supportive atmosphere of a small town with the advantages of an urban centre. Its location at the edge of the environmentally significant Oak Ridges Moraine adds scenic beauty to this growing urban community.
