Known now for its lush natural environment and laidback lifestyle, Our Town is a city with a rich and varied history. Originally a trading centre prior to the arrival of the Europeans, Our Town was at the heart of the country’s gateway to the west.
Over the past several decades, Our Town has developed into a diverse and multicultural city complete with award-winning restaurants, high-end shops, world-renowned museums and a vibrant arts and culture scene.
Looking forward, City Council wants to define Our Town by its sustainability, opportunity, and sense of community pride. Working collaboratively with residents, a civic plan has been developed to achieve several benchmarks to this effect over the remainder of the Mayor's term in office.
