A city only incorporated in 1991, Vaughan is located 40 km northwest of Toronto and includes the communities of Maple, Kleinburg, Concord, Woodbridge, and part of Thornhill. It is in the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, the Anishinaabeg of the Williams Treaty First Nations, the Huron-Wendat, and the Métis Nation. The city stands on the traditional territories of First Nations peoples, who used a travelling route along the Humber River, known as the Carrying Place Trail. Remains of longhouses and tools have been found within the city, including the Seed-Barker, Boyd, and Jarrett-Lahmer archeological sites. Within the city you will also find several parks and conservation areas, including the Kortright Centre for Conservation, Boyd Conservation Area, Mackenzie Glen District Park, and Sugarbush Heritage Park. Vaughan developed strong agricultural and milling industries in the 1900s, and their immigration subsequently increased in the late-20th century. This rise in population continues today and Vaughan is considered to be one of the fastest-growing municipalities in Canada. It is incredibly multicultural-- nearly 100 different languages are spoken. People come to Vaughan from all over the world!
