About the organization
The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville was created in 1971 when Whitchurch Township, the Community of Stouffville and a portion of the Township of Markham amalgamated. Nestled within the rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine, it is a community with everything. Close enough to one of Canada’s largest cities (Toronto), yet far enough away to hear the call of the wild. Large enough to be home to over 26,000 people in the labour force, yet small enough to retain our neighborhoods and quiet way of life. Young enough to enjoy our high standards of education families deserve, yet comfortable enough to retire and relax in. At the end of 2021, the population was estimated to be 49,864. This marks a 8.8% increase in population since 2016. We have a very diverse population in Whitchurch-Stouffville, where close to 46% of our entire population belongs to a visible minority group.
