Whitby City Guide

Population Growth

Whitby is a city in southern Ontario. It sits between Ajax, to the east, and Oshawa, to the west.  Whitby is considered a significant economic contributor to Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe area, which is a major economic driver of the Canadian economy.

Like much of the Durham region, the population of this city grew rapidly over the last decades. According to Statistics Canada, the number of residents more than doubled since 1986. Today the city’s population is just over 128,000 people.

Many current Whitby residents commute to work. Those commuting travel west to Ajax, Pickering and Toronto, or east to Oshawa and Bowmanville. The biggest employers in the city are General Motors Canada, Gerdau Ameristeel, Sobeys and the Liquor Control Board of Ontario. The median household income in Whitby is quite high at just over $115,000, according to 2013 statistics.

More than 83% of the city’s residents speak English as their mother tongue. The remaining 17% of residents are visible minorities—mostly South Asian, Chinese and Black.

One big advantage is that Highway 401 runs right through the southern end of the city. This is where most of the urban, residential development and retail spaces exist. While the northern part of the city is still under development much of it remains in large plots of empty land, acreages, as well as rural forest and farmland.


There are 10 official communities in Whitby, each one ranging in population from 8,700 to 15,800 residents.

To find the right community for you and your family, consider talking to a local Whitby real estate agent. To get you started here are a few suggestions:

Commuters may want to start their house-hunting search in the Taunton North community. This neighbourhood consists mostly of large suburban-style family homes with double-car garages. One big advantage is how accessible this community will be to the newly built 407 Express Toll Route.

For waterfront living check out Port Whitby. South of Highway 401, the houses for sale in this area of Whitby are built for families, although there are some condo developments now being built near to this community.

For a more affordable neighbourhood with a bit of a small-town feel check out Brooklin. The new addition to the 407 Express Toll Route will make this neighbourhood far more accessible for commuters and the house prices are a bit more reasonable.

The most expensive properties can be found north of Winchester Rd in Rural Whitby. The average home sells for $1.1 million, but usually gets you a much bigger lot and a tremendous amount of privacy.

To find out what neighbourhood is best for you, spend a weekend checking out open houses in Whitby. You can narrow down your must-see spots by using our hot-list. The list ranks all of the city’s neighbourhoods, based on a formula that takes into consideration the number of listings available, the average sale price, and the number of days homes for sale stay on the market before being sold.

Local Scoop

Despite being nestled amidst a large urban area, Whitby offers an abundance of outdoor green space and protected parkland. Locals love to walk the Waterfront Trail—a series of interconnected trails mainly along the shores of Lake Ontario. The trails begin in Niagara-on-the-Lake and extend past Whitby to Brockville, Ontario. (Through Toronto the trail is called the Martin Goodman Trail.)

For bird-watching go to Lynde Shores Conservation Area. Locals report seeing deer and bucks roaming close to the hiking trails. You can even spot wild turkeys, a bird that is often very skittish. Chickadees and chipmunks will often eat peanuts from the hands of visitors. There are also flocks of blue jays and cardinals. In the evening, the park is a great place to watch hundreds of geese landing on the water. Just remember to bring your rubber boots as many of the trails are wet and muddy for most of the year.

For more relaxed walking trails, where only sneakers or sandals are required, go to Heber Down Conservation Area. Many locals walk their dogs here or go for a run. The chipmunks in this park are very friendly and love eating the seeds and nuts visitors bring as treats.

If the weather won’t cooperate take the fun inside at one of the many recreational and indoor play centres in the city. Kids Zone has a large indoor play centre where you’ll find a large climbing structure with multiple levels of tubes, bridges and slides. Then there’s Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park. Kids and adults can bounce, jump and leap their way into blissful exhaustion in this large warehouse space converted into a go-to jump centre.

If you want to check out the city’s downtown core, don’t be surprised if a local suggests two options. The official Downtown Whitby is located close to the Dundas St West and Brock Street South intersection, close to where the city’s Central Library is located. However, the historical downtown—a cool looking heritage district—is actually north of Highway 407, near the intersection of Winchester Road East and Baldwin Street North. This area is known as Downtown Brooklin and it still has that old-world village feel.
