Thinking of moving to Oakville, Burlington or Milton?
For the fourth year in a row, Halton region (which comprises Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Acton) has been ranked the safest regionial municipality in the Greater Toronto Area, and in Canada.
This distinction, according to Maclean‘s magazine, a major Canadian magazine, in its 2010 rankings. These rankings are based on crime data from Statistics Canada. Conversely, Prince George, B.C. was given the title of Canada’s most crime-ridden city.
According to the Oakville Beaver today, Regional Chair Gary Carr said “This achievement is the result of our residents, businesses and local municipalities, working together with Halton Regional Police to ensure that this is a safe place to live, work, raise a family and retire.”
Wayne and I attended a recent meeting of the West Kerr Residents Association, the neighbourhood where we live, and the local police officer assigned to our community spoke on pro-active work that he is doing to ensure safety in the area. This is one of the reasons why so many people that are moving to Canada from other countries choose to settle in the Oakville-Burlington-Milton area.
