London is a city in the province of Ontario. Almost 384,000 call London home, making it the largest southwestern Ontario city and the 11th largest city in Canada. For the last decade, London has grown steadily in size by 3% to 5% each year.

The city’s economy focuses on education, medical research, insurance and information technology. The University of Western Ontario and Fanshawe College are located here, as well as several hospitals. These institutions create jobs and make the city a regional centre for health care and education.

One contributing factor to the city’s economic success is its location in the superhighway. Known as the Quebec City-to-Windsor-corridor this series of 400-highways sees more than $1.5 billion in trade every day. As a result, local businesses get access to more than 150 million consumers that are within a one-day drive.

The economic advantages of the city attract a diverse community. The ethnic origins of the city are predominantly English (30.5%), Canadian (26%), Scottish (20.8%), Irish (20.3%), German (11.5%), French (10.1%), and the remaining are Dutch (6.2%), Italian (4.7%), Polish (4.4%), Portuguese (2.8%) and Ukrainian (2.5%).

As a mid-sized city, London offers a very good quality of life. London real estate and houses are affordable, there are good, well-paying jobs and the city offers plenty of amenities. This translates into a happy, giving community. This compassionate is noticeable with almost 50% of the population either volunteering or contributing to a charity every year.

Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Stratford, Brantford and Thamesville are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Local Scoop

Looking for things to do in London? Ask a local and they'll probably have plenty of suggestions. For instance, you could take the family to Clovermead Adventure Farm for the day where the kids could check out the live bee hive displays, enjoy pedal go-karts, feed the farm animals, take a wagon ride and cruise the tricycle track. Or spend the day in East Park, a multi-faceted facility. There’s an 18-hole executive golf course, a water park and plenty of family-friendly picnic areas. Kids and the young at heart will be entertained all day with go-karts, batting cages, mini-golf and an indoor rock climbing wall. For a more historical experience check out Fanshawe Pioneer Village. This pioneer village tells the story of rural life in the area in the early 1900s.

For a more hands-on, belly-full experience go produce-picking at Kusterman’s Berry Farms. The acres of farmland at the Kusterman family farm lets you and your family pick a variety of fruits, including blueberries, raspberries and pumpkins.

Once a year, however, the locals will abandon the parks and amusement centres and head straight for Forest City Comicon. Based on the famous comic con events, this local event features costumes, vendors, panels, board game, video game tournaments and more. It’s the largest family-friendly event of its kind in the city.

Those looking to experience the gastronomy of this city should check out Plant Matter Kitchen, a 100% plant-based restaurant. Vegan, organic, ethical and delicious, this vegan eatery offers daily specials and a mouth-watering experience. Or check out the next greatest chef Saffron restaurant. The restaurant is operated and staffed by students at Fanshawe College, School of Tourism and Hospitality and is only open for lunch and dinner from Monday to Friday. It’s best to book a reservation as seats fill up quickly.

If you really want to become a local Londoner, consider supporting local businesses. The Shop Local London app (www.shoplocalperks.com) rewards customers with discounts and perks for shopping at local independent businesses. Even better, become a subscriber to the London Local Box. Every month you’ll get an assortment of locally made products including samples from Habitual Chocolate, Aroma Scents Natural Products, From the Meadow skin-care products and Living Alive granola. Most items are handmade and all are from London companies.
