Welcome to Whitby

Whitby is a town in Ontario, Canada. It is located east of Toronto on the north shore of Lake Ontario, and is home to the headquarters of Durham Region.

The shores of Lake Ontario dominate the south side of the city and form an ideal natural harbour, where boats, waterfowl, green space and people all intermingle when it's warm outside. The hustle and bustle of the city is largely left behind in Whitby, where parks abound, from Iroquois Park, a large man-made recreation complex, to Lynde Shores Conservation Area, wilderness oasis that has somehow managed to elude industrialization.

The history of Whitby dates back to the early 1800s when the first settlers set up camp here, and for those interested in getting to know more about Whitby's past and present, the Whitby Museum offers artifacts and activities for kids and kids at heart. Fancy a day at the beach? Iroquois Beach is the place, and nearby Lion's Promenade offers the perfect spot for a morning jog or evening stroll.

While the southern portion of Whitby is predominantly urban, and an economic hub, the northern part of the municipality is more rural and includes the communities of Ashburn, Brooklin, Myrtle and Myrtle Station.
