Business Class Program


Georgina is geographically one of the largest municipalities in York Region, and is situated just one hour north of Toronto on the south east shore of Lake Simcoe. The municipality is comprised of a number of lakefront communities, small rural hamlets and three larger communities Keswick, Sutton/Jackson’s Point and Pefferlaw. Keswick is by far the largest community with a population of more than 25,000, representing more than half of Georgina’s total population.

The majority of growth and development will occur in the southern most community of Keswick. Highway 404 which is located at the southern border of Georgina provides Georgina easy access to Canada’s largest market, the GTA. 

The Town has recently designated 550 acres on the east side of Woodbine Ave. at the terminus of the Hwy. 404 extension for the development of employment generating land uses.
