Halton Region is located within the Greater Golden Horseshoe Area (GGHA) of Ontario, which is one of the fastest growing regions in North America. Over the last decade, Halton Region’s overall population has increased from 439,206 in 2006 to 548,435 in 2016, an increase of approximately 25%. One of the major growth centres in the Region is the Town of Milton, which grew by a staggering 104% over this period, followed by the Town of Oakville, which grew by 17% over the same period.
Halton Region continues to project an increase in population, largely due to migration from within Canada as well as new immigrants entering Canada. This will continue to support a vibrant and growing student population in HCDSB. To meet this growth, the Board will need to ensure that Catholic student accommodation is adequately provided for the existing and future students of the Board.
