Once defined by the heavy industry that dominated the area, Hamilton has transformed itself from the “Steel City” to a education and healthcare center. Hamilton is the ninth largest city in Canada, fourth largest in Ontario, and ranked as one of the top ten places to do business in Canada. Situated on the Niagara escarpment, Hamilton is only 45 minutes from Toronto, the U.S. border and the Niagara and Waterloo Regional campuses.

From the urban experience of the downtown and its growing art, entertainment and food scene to the quite communities that tie their residents, Hamilton has attracted young professionals looking for big city amenities but desiring the charm that a smaller city brings.

As someone new to Hamilton I was pleasantly surprised by the number of things to do in the community. I’m a person who likes to be involved in community sports and I was quickly able to build connections with people playing in a variety of different adult sport leagues.
