Hamilton is a port city in southern Ontario. It started as a farm before being purchased and developed by George Hamilton shortly after the War of 1812. Today more than 535,000 call Hamilton home making it the 9th largest city in Canada.

There are a number of interesting and important landmarks in the city. It’s home to the Royal Botanical Gardens and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. It’s also where the first Tim Horton’s coffee shop opened its doors.

Aspiring medical students come to the city to attend McMaster University’s well-regarded medical schools. While sports fans know the town because the Canadian Football League’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats call the city home.

Recently, however, it’s the city’s art scene that’s been drawing lots of attention. Journalists poured into the city last year to try and understand why so many independent galleries and artist coalitions choose the city as a home-base. The answer is, in part, because housing is still relatively inexpensive and, in part, because the city offers a great blend of grit and culture. It’s something filmmakers have known for years. The city is consistently used as a backdrop in a variety of independent films and box-office movies.

Immigrants also seem to be drawn to Hamilton. More than 20% of the city’s current population wasn’t born in Canada. Most of these immigrants came from Italy, Poland, India, Portugal, the Philippines, Croatia and the United State. In 2014, the city’s council voted to declare Hamilton a sanctuary city. Undocumented immigrants that are at risk of deportation now have access to much-needed municipal services.

Hamilton’s economy is driven heavily by industrialized manufacturing with 60% of Canada’s steel produced in Hamilton by Stelco and Dofasco.

Neighbourhoods

There are over 200 neighbourhoods in the Regional Municipality of Hamilton. This regional area includes six local cities: Ancaster, Dundas, Flamborough, Glanbrook, Hamilton and Stoney Creek. In Hamilton, alone, there are almost 100 communities with an average sale price of about $610,000.

To find an area that suits your needs consider what’s important to you and your lifestyle. If being close to the city’s urban core is important, consider homes for sale in the Durand, Stinson and Lansdale neighbourhoods. Keep in mind, however, that these communities are still in the process of being developed.

If you’re a commuter who wants quick highway access consider Westdale, Dundurn or Kirkendall North. These communities have great access to Highway 403 and homes typically sell for close to the city average.

Those looking for established family neighbourhoods should look in the communities east of the downtown core. These areas include Raleigh, Bartonville and Burkholme.

Nearby Cities

Good options include Ancaster, Dundas and Stoney Creek. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Burlington, Grimsby, St. Catharines and Brantford are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Commuters

Local Scoop

If you want to do what the locals do, you have to see what the locals see. Rather than view Hamilton as Steeltown, look again. It’s Greentown. In the summer the city is covered in green space: forests, fields, parks, hiking trails, even the escarpment add to this sea of green. To take advantage of green space, locals like to hit the hiking trails. A few favourites are 93 hectares along Lake Ontario known as Confederation Park. Not only can you walk the trails, but you can spend the day swimming at the beach. The Devil’s Punchbowl along the Niagara Escarpment is a 33.8-metre high waterfall that offers exceptional views as well as a glimpse into the many layers that make up the escarpment rock. For underground caves and streams check out Eramosa Karst park.

While walking around the city you may notice stairs. Lots and lots of stairs. At Chedoke Park there’s a set of stairs with 289 steps; Dundurn Street has 326 steps; James Street has 227 steps; Wentworth Street has 498 stairs; Kenilworth has 229 steps and there’s an unofficial staircase at Uli that has 305 steps. All told that’s almost 2,000 stairs that connect Hamilton’s growing neighbourhoods and to help keep you fit and hopping throughout the summer.

If you’d prefer to take in the sounds of this city check out The Augusta House on Monday nights where there is an interactive music night. Do the same, again, on Wednesday night at the Coach and Lantern. For a more Irish experience make your way to the Slainte Irish Pub on Bowen Street.

For shopping that doesn’t include a big box store or mall, check out Locke Street South, in south-west Hamilton. This community commercial zone is a mix of speciality shops, restaurants, boutiques, galleries, salons and florists.

If you’ve bought your place and need to refresh the decor head over to the city’s fabric and textile district on Ottawa Street. While it’s still home to fabric stores and home decor shops, you’ll also find a few nice spots for a coffee or to do a bit of antiquing.
