More than 73% of the city’s population use English as their primary language. The largest segment of immigrants is the Italians, followed by the Russians, Persians, Chinese and Spanish.

In the last 10 years, the city has consistently made it to various rankings and lists that measure the wealthiest cities in Canada. Many of these lists base their ranking on annual income and a household’s net worth. Based on this data, it turns out Aurora’s residents do well. Really well. The city’s largest employers are auto parts giant Magna International that was founded by Frank Stronach and TC Transcontinental. Other large employment sectors within the city include advanced manufacturing, green industries, and interactive media.

What many don’t know is that the town was first known as Machell’s Corners. It was the 1850s and there were only 100 residents. Less than 20 years later there were 1,200 residents and the town as incorporated as Aurora. The most famous person to be raised in the town was Lester B. Pearson, the Prime Minister of Canada between 1963 and 1968. Lester’s father had moved the family to the town of Aurora where he was a Methodist minister.
