Business Parks

Halton Region provides land and opportunity for business growth.

The region has 16 existing business parks - designated employment areas - and seven more locations planned for the future, with water and wastewater servicing to be completed by 2021. Nearly all of Halton's business parks are close to Ontario's major highways, while also offering employees nearby amenities and providing excellent access to talented people and the Greater Toronto Area market.

Another important advantage for Halton businesses is the average annualized cost for office development, lower than in Toronto and in other GTA communities. From industrial manufacturing and large warehousing and distribution centres, to major office developments supporting the knowledge- based economy, businesses can find the available land and opportunities to grow and prosper in Halton.
