Burlington is a city in the Regional Municipality of Halton at the northwestern end of Lake Ontario in Ontario, Canada. Along with Milton to the north, Burlington forms the west end of the Greater Toronto Area and is also part of the Hamilton urban census area. Burlington lies in between Lake Ontario’s north coast and the Niagara Escarpment.
Burlington’s financial strength is the diversity of its economic base, generally attained because of its geography, distance to large industries in southern Ontario (Canada’s biggest consumer market), its area within the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) and proximity to Hamilton, and its transportation facilities including the Port of Hamilton on Burlington Bay. This diversity has permitted sustained growth with concerns to the economy. The city has a robust economy with potential for growth– it is at the center of the Golden Horseshoe, which is primarily driven by both the automobile and production sectors.
No single employer or task sector dominates Burlington’s economy. The leading commercial industries, in terms of employment, are food processing, packaging, electronics, motor vehicle/transportation, service services, chemical/pharmaceutical, and ecological. The leading five private-sector employers in Burlington are Fearmans Pork Inc, Cogeco Cable, Evertz Microsystems, Boehringer Ingelheim, and EMC2. Other notable services consist of The EBF Group, ARGO Land Development, and The Sunshine Doughnut Company. The largest public sector companies in the city are the City of Burlington, the Halton District School Board, the Halton Catholic District School Board, and Joseph Brant Hospital.
Burlington Centre and Mapleview Centre are popular malls within the city. The numerous summer season festivals in the city consist of Canada’s Largest Ribfest and the Burlington Sound of Music Festival, which also attracts various visitors.
