About The Pickering Community


Pickering has experienced rapid growth in the post-war period. Between 1996 and 2012. Population growth has slowed considerably in recent years, growing only slightly between the 2001 and 2006 census. This is due mainly to development restrictions on land in the northern portion of the city. Negotiations are ongoing to permit development in this area. Consequently, the city has estimated that by 2023, Pickering will be home to nearly 170,000 residents[2]. The province of Ontario has also designated Pickering as one of two municipalities in Durham Region as an urban growth centre.

The southern part of the city is mainly suburban with industrial areas mainly restricted to the area around Pickering Nuclear Generating Station. Most of the suburban areas were built as subdivisions after World War 2 starting in the area around Frenchman's Bay. Prior to the war, the few suburban areas in the township were the communities of Dunbarton, Fairport, Liverpool Market, and Rouge Hill.

The northern part of the municipality is mainly rural, primarily used for agricultural purposes. However, a number of communities exist in this area, and the locally controversial Seaton area also falls within this part of the city. The primary rural communities in Pickering are Claremont, Brougham, and Whitevale; however, a number of smaller communities exist throughout northern Pickering including the ghost town of Altona.  If you would like to know about Real Estate in Any of these Pickering areas, please contact Kirk Rickman or Victoria Carter at 905-683-2100 or victoria.carter@century21.ca 

Pickering is a founding member of the Durham Strategic Energy Alliance or DSEA. The nucleus of the DSEA is primarily Pickering businesses such as Ontario Power Generation, Veridian, Wardrop Engineering, AECL, Intellimeter, Areva and Eco-Tec.

In 2006, Profit magazine recognized Pickering as one of the top 10 cities in Canada to grow a business.
