Toronto has the craziest growth though, I cannot get over how many buildings have gone up in the past few years.
Canada is quickly urbanizing.
Yes, most of Canada is urbanising. Our cities are increasing density, in most regions -- and in terms of Canadians across the entire nation, we are urbanising in our choices of residence. There is a steady migration of canucks from rural Canada to urban Canada.
I frequent the other Canadian pages on this forum as well, particularly Toronto. The speedy changes to that city's skyline have been quite remarkable. The urban progress, actually, through most of Central and Western Canada has been extremely promising. I'm absolutely thrilled about what's been done in Calgary!!
I'm hoping more towns and cities in Atlantic Canada renew their efforts toward urbanising. Since the majority of the younger working demographics are seeking urban life, our communities in Atlantic Canada need to think like capitalists and make more of an effort to market our communities to this new labour force.
This is why Halifax's progress is so absolutely refreshing in an Atlantic Canadian context.
