Message from the Mayor of Markham

Mayor Frank Scarpitti

Welcome to Destination Markham!

Diversity is one of Markham’s greatest signature attributes. We’re home to a diverse collection of people and cultures, foods and festivities. We host a vast and varied group of businesses representing different sectors serving different markets, comprising multi-national enterprises through to entrepreneurial start-ups and street-front mom and pop shops.

Our communities are a mixture of urban amenities alongside the quaint shops of historic Unionville, century homes in Thornhill Village, heritage sites of Markham Village, and the new urban flavour of Downtown Markham, coiffed with natural greenspaces including Canada’s preeminent Rouge National Urban Park. Wide-ranging housing styles and ample overnight accommodations reflect the diversity of the very people who live and work here, and who warmly welcome you – whether residents, family, friends or visitors – with open arms and inviting smiles.

Destination Markham Corporation’s (DMC) goal is to make good on the promise that whether you are visiting Markham for business, for a cultural or sports event, or for leisure travel, there’s something for you.

We invite you to take a few minutes to learn about the Destination Markham Corporation and our City’s wonderfully eclectic makeup; a diversity that defines our appeal as a safe destination with lots to love and so much to do – and above all else – steadfast.

Mayor Frank Scarpitti
