Halton Hills is a town in the Regional Municipality of Halton which is located west of Toronto, and part of the GTA. With the amalgamation of the former Towns of Georgetown and Acton, in 1974, Halton Hills was established.
Within this town, there are a number of hamlets and rural regions such as Ashgrove, Ballinafad, Bannockburn, Crewsons Corners, Glen Williams, Henderson's Corners, Hornby, Limehouse, Mansewood, Norval, Scotch Block, Silver Creek, Speyside, Stewarttown, Terra Cotta and Wildwood.
Real estate in Halton Hills can be found about 40 kilometres west of Toronto, sitting on the scenic rolling hills of the Niagara Escarpment. Although this town is predominantly rural, it does include two large urban areas in Georgetown and Acton. This city is also lucky to have large tracts of conservation lands which offer plenty of recreational opportunities for local residents.
The largest employer’s in Halton Hill include Cooper Standard, Louisiana Pacific, Mould Masters, Neilson Dairy as well as Sheridan Nurseries (one of the largest garden centre retailers in Canada).
Halton Hills is also home to many wonderful natural features such as the Niagara Escarpment, and the Bruce Trail. A lot of these neighbourhood features are protected by the Conservation Halton, Credit Valley Conservation & Grand River Conservation Authority.
