The City of Burlington has kept both its agricultural and commercial roots. We've attracted business from across Canada and around the world, and more than 13,000 businesses employ more than 85,000 people here.
In April 2013, the City of Burlington approved the first Burlington Community Engagement Charter. The charter states that engaging people on issues that affect their lives and their city is "a key component of democratic society. Community involvement encourages participation, actions and personal responsibility."
The objective of community engagement is to lead to more informed and, therefore, better decision-making.
More than 4,000 people helped form the strategic plan that guides Burlington City Council decisions. The plan supports vibrant neighborhoods, a prosperous city and excellence in government. More engagement is planned for 2015.

Burlington is working hard to accomplish the expected growth of population and jobs. As neighboring land becomes industrialized, we're looking at smart ways to build within the city (infill).
