London is a truly centrally located southwestern Ontario city within a day’s drive of 150 million people. This growing city is located where the 402 joins the 401, just 2 hours from Windsor/Detroit, 2 hours from Niagara Falls/Buffalo, and 1 hour from Sarnia/Port Huron.
London has much to offer families and businesses that locate here. Minimal commute times, relatively low taxes and affordable housing make London an attractive choice for both living and doing business. In 2002, the City of London was named one of the three most home business-friendly communities in Canada.
The city features fine dining, an art gallery, a children’s museum, Storybook Gardens, live theatre, a convention centre, several cultural associations, and a new sports/entertainment complex which has been attracting sellout crowds since it opened in the fall of 2002. London was also chosen as the host city for the 2001 Canada Summer Games.
