The London of today evolved from its original settlement in 1826 as the government seat for the vast London District which covered most of central Western Ontario. In 2008, with a population nearing the half million mark; it is the 15th largest city in Canada. As a result, London is a thriving city full of creativity, growth and opportunity. Located between Toronto and Detroit, London offers the best of living: friendly communities, good job opportunities, and of course world-class schools (Go Mustangs!).
London's regional economy is highly based on manufacturing, and the unemployment rate is slightly above the national level, but lower when compared to the provincial estimate. While our real estate market continues to grow, affordable housing remains an issue for many London and area residents. London has a higher proportion of residents below the low-income cut off (LICO) than many other Canadian cities, and one of the highest low-income rates in Ontario. London is home to a relatively large multicultural and multilingual population - almost 22% are foreign born residents. According to the 2008 Vital Signs Report, areas of concern include child poverty, homelessness, unemployment, and the environment.
