Markham, Ontario, is a thriving metropolis. Many IT companies have relocated to Markham. The city offers first class theatre, a booming economy, many family activities and is a warm and friendly place. I relocated to Markham thirteen years ago, and have never regretted my decision to reside here.

Markham is a beautiful suburban city known for its quiet neighborhoods and friendly people. The schools are also ranked top of the province in standardized tests, indicating the academic proficiency and commitment to excellence in students. There is a wide selection of restaurants, celebrating various cultures. There are also many amenities, such as libraries, malls, and community centers.

Markham is an expensive city, unless you hold a high paying job. However, lots of people still choose to stay here because it is cheaper than staying in Downtown Toronto. There is also the factor that you have access to all the important highways, if you plan to commute to work daily. There is a huge Asian community in this area.

Markham is very near to Toronto, so you could experience both the pace of a metro life even when you are technically not residing in a metro city. This place has lot of conservation forests with long trails which makes you feel the beauty of countryside. Though the rent is a bit on the costly side, it is totally worth.
