“The Socio-Economic Study highlights the diverse, welcoming community that we are so proud of,” said Mayor Dave Barrow. “Over half of our population is comprised of immigrants.

The 2015 study indicates a shift toward higher density housing such as townhomes and high-rise buildings which will provide more choice to residents in the future. The study also shows that transit use is growing. More than 16 per cent of residents take public transit as of 2011, a sizable increase from 12.8 per cent in 2001. Richmond Hill promotes transit and active transportation such as walking and cycling as a way to develop a healthy community less dependent on the automobile.
“The study helps us focus our knowledge of Richmond Hill so that we can determine the right steps to move our community forward,” said Mayor Barrow. “While it’s great to see that transit use and housing choices are growing, we know that traffic congestion and housing affordability are still key issues.” Search Richmond Hill Houses For Sale here.
History of Richmond Hill
The Town of Richmond Hill started out as a small settlement located partially in the Township of Vaughan and partially in the Township of Markham. The Town’s development was closely linked with the development of Yonge Street, which was planned primarily as a military road by John Graves Simcoe, the first Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of Upper Canada.
The Town was officially incorporated on June 18, 1872 as a village and the first council meeting was held on January 1, 1873 under the leadership of Abraham Law as Reeve. Richmond Hill developed because of its proximity to Toronto, as farmers came into town on their way to Toronto markets and people travelled up and down Yonge Street to and from communities further north.

Early in the twentieth century, several large greenhouse operations were built in Richmond Hill, while rose growing turned the Town into the “rose capital” of Canada. In the 1920’s, village council adopted the motto of the Duke of Richmond, for whom the Town may have been named. A local artist and carriage painter, William Ashford Wright, created a town crest that included elements of the Duke of Richmond’s coat of arms and roses.
Data from the recent census conducted by Statistics Canada indicated that Richmond Hill continues to be one of Canada’s fastest growing municipalities. The Town’s population exceeded 200,000 in 2014. Search hundreds of MLS listings, Richmond Hill Houses For Sale here.

That is why the Town’s un-official motto is “A little north, a little nicer.”
