Community of Choice... for Business
Mayor Don Mitchell

Welcome to Whitby!

I am delighted to welcome you to Whitby, one of Canada's fastest growing municipalities and best places to live. Whitby is in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and is the centre of Durham Region.

Located about 30 minutes east of Downtown Toronto, Whitby is poised for continued growth.  An important recent development is the extension of Highway 407 and the construction of the West Durham Link (WDL) from Highway 407 to Highway 401. Prime new employment lands will soon be available along Highway 407 and the WDL.

Whitby has been selected as the Community of Choice for business by a growing list of companies including AECOM, Golder Associates, BMW, Makita, Gerdau, and Patheon. Whitby has a very diverse economy, a growing population, a well educated and skilled workforce as a result of outstanding post secondary institutions in and around our community, and a competitive cost environment to support business.

Economic development is one of Whitby's key priorities. I am committed to working with the business community and personally invite you to contact me for an introduction to the Town of Whitby and our business community.

Please contact us at or for direct contact with my office,


Mayor Don Mitchell
