Community of Choice... for Business

Welcome to Whitby!

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Town of Whitby and our economic development website.

Located just 30 minutes east of Toronto, Whitby is one of Canada's fastest growing municipalities.

Whitby has a very diverse economy, a well educated and skilled workforce as a result of outstanding post secondary institutions in the community, excellent transportation options to connect business and a competitive cost environment to support industry.

Whitby is also a well planned community with an abundance of recreational, cultural and residential alternatives.

The combination of these attributes makes Whitby a Community of Choice.  

I am proud that Whitby has an 'Open for Business' attitude and is dedicated to supporting the growth of our business community.

Experience what Whitby can do for you, just like it has for companies such as BMW, McGraw-Hill Ryerson, Makita, Sony, Gerdau, Patheon and many others.

If you would like to see what Whitby has to offer, please accept my personal invitation to visit our town and let us introduce you to our business community.

Please contact us at or for direct contact with my office,

Pat Perkins
