Mayor's Message



 It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website for the Town of Whitby.

I invite you to explore our website with links for residents, business, visitors and information on our Town.  It is our goal to keep you informed on the activities in the Town and all that we have to offer.

Whether you are looking for an upcoming event, registering for a recreation program, seeking economic development information or wishing to review reports for a Committee or Council meeting, you will find it here.

Whitby has a vibrant and progressive character. We are the 'Community of Choice' for families and business, embracing the future, respecting our proud heritage and natural environment, and promoting our strong sense of community identity.

I am especially pleased that the Town of Whitby is ranked 16th overall, out of 190 cities and towns with a population over 10,000, as one of Canada's Best Places to Live as determined by MoneySense magazine.  We are the 33rd Best Place to Retire and the 12th Best Place to Raise a Family.

This is quite impressive overall.  I thank you for your role in making Whitby such a great place to live, work and play.

Your feedback on this website would be appreciated.  Please let us know how we may continue to enhance your experience.
