Nestled at the forks of the Thames River in the heart of southwestern Ontario, London is a special place to live and work. Here, the affordability, charm and security of a mid-size community combine with the business and career opportunities of a big city, offering the best of both worlds. Clean air, tree-lined streets, and first class parks and recreation facilities are just a few of the qualities that entice families to London.
For those who like the active life, London serves up leisure activities to suit all ages and abilities. From family skating downtown on outdoor rinks at Victoria Park or Covent Garden Market to skiing on Boler Mountain, winter holds lots of fun. In summer, enjoy the abundance of festivals in the downtown core, enjoy cycling along more than 30 kms of bike paths or try your hand at sailing on Fanshawe Lake. Green space abounds in and around London with 1,350 hectares of parkland.
For spectators, there is hockey, football, baseball, college sports, harness racing at Western Fair Raceway, and a spectacular annual air show. The London Knights, a Junior “A” Hockey team, play at the new John Labatt Centre in downtown London and the Western Mustangs football team attracts a faithful following to fall games, held at the TD Waterhouse stadium on the campus of Western University.
An active community of artists gives the region’s cultural life great vitality. The London Museum is a great place to take in an art exhibit and to enjoy a delicious lunch in a restaurant overlooking the Forks of the Thames. Orchestra London and Western’s Faculty of Music, along with other choirs, choruses and bands all contribute to a healthy and eclectic music scene.
The Grand Theatre, with two stages, presents an outstanding selection of professional productions each year and the London Fringe Festival is the eighth largest of its kind in Canada.
The Covent Garden Market, located downtown, attracts Londoners and visitors alike, especially in spring, summer and fall when the outdoor market square fills with local growers offering their best seasonal produce.
London is a great place to call home. This is a city that has it all – exciting job opportunities, good neighbourhoods, excellent education and health care facilities, and plenty to do in your leisure time, including exploring ways to give back to the community through volunteer work. It’s all right at your doorstep in London!
