The population in Halton region is roughly 596,000 residents. The population in this region is forecasted to grow to 690,000 by 2026 and to 1,156,000 people by 2051. There is a growing and active labour force and there will continue to be. One expects there to be robust employment growth in most sectors, with the exceptions of primary industries, manufacturing, and some information services, such as print media. These growth factors, along with others, will come into play when property owners and tenants decide to purchase or lease a Property and where their services should be located to maximize their utility. There is much to be discussed regarding this topic.
