Vaughan, often called “the city above Toronto,” is one of the fastest-growing urban centres in the Greater Toronto Area—thanks to available job opportunities and excellent tax rates, the population has more than doubled since 1991. There are five different communities in the town: Woodbridge, Maple, Concord, Kleinburg, and Thornhill.
