East Gwillimbury is proud of its history. Quakers and United Empire Loyalists moved into East Gwillimbury wanting to start new lives and build new settlements. The township is truly dedicated to preserving its cultural and historical sites, artifacts and traditions within each community acknowledging the hard work and contributions of original settlers. East Gwillimbury has a cottage-country style setting that gives you plenty of ways to unwind at nearby parks, hiking trails, conservation areas and local marinas where you can launch your boat.
Originally a village found along concession roads used by Quaker settlers, Queensville was built in 1843. This cute and charming town has an original rural town feel that is usually only found in remote Ontario communities. This community will be home to significant growth over the next few years with the construction of new homes and schools.
East Gwillimbury recently expanded the Green Lane Corridor to attract more businesses and jobs whilst building new homes and transit options in the area. The town has also seen Highway 404 open an exit/entrance at Green Lane and Queensville Side Road leading all the way to Georgina. A Secondary Plan for future expansion is already in the planning stages and it is expected to rival that of Ontario’s greatest towns.
East Gwillimbury’s rural area includes the protected lands of the Oak Ridges Moraine and Provincial Greenbelt. The region is home to agriculture and aggregate resources, protected green space, rural commercial and industrial areas, recreational areas and a few residential developments.
East Gwillimbury has a wide variety of sports and activities for children and adults through local community groups. Activities include: softball, fastball, hockey, skating, soccer, tennis, run/walk clubs, swimming, football and Girl Guides and Cub Scouts of Canada. If you’re looking for a little bit of downtime, community parks, picnic shelters and conservation areas are only minutes away. You can even schedule a day of golf at Pheasant Run Golf or Shawneeki Golf Club.
The Town recently joined David Suzuki’s Blue Dot Movement, which is a foundation to support a healthy environment. This initiative emphasizes the town’s commitment to its citizens, one of only a few across Canada.

Very accommodating and flexible with scheduling. Josh had a very solid grasp on the market and was very patient with my wife and I as we were going through the home buying process for the first time. An absolute pleasure to deal with, I would highly recommend! - David & Christine Beishuizenread more
Reading through all of these very positive reviews, we go on record to totally agree on all points. Josh is knowledgeable, patient, honest, hard working and just an all around nice guy. He sold our home in Newmarket 8 years ago (in a couple of days) so we didn’t hesitate to contact him to help with the sale of our current home. He worked his magic and aligned the whole universe to get our house sold on the same day it went on the market for over asking. We couldn’t be more thrilled. I can’t stress the ‘patient’ part enough. We engaged Josh in May of 2015 when we purchased a new home in Lindsay, knowing that it wouldn’t be ready until 2017. The developer ran into issues which caused delay after delay. Josh kept in touch with us throughout all of this, keeping us calm, and we are finally looking forward to our move to Lindsay in November!! Thanks so much Josh. It has been a pleasure to work with you and your AMAZING team. Staging, photography, signage, marketing...all of it, just awesome. - Jim & Janet McDonnellread more
