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.
With increased development and the expansion of Highway 404, East Gwillimbury has experienced steady growth for retail businesses and restaurants. Local restaurants cater to its community as well as Newmarket with a variety of places to go for breakfast, lunch or dinner. East Gwillimbury has it all from fine-dining experiences to more casual menus that you can enjoy with friends and family. Expanding retail businesses join established shops covering all your needs for electronics, lumber, hardware, furniture and household products. Locally grown produce and pastries can be found at the original Vince’s Market in Sharon.
East Gwillimbury is home to the Sharon Drive-In! While Toronto tries to simulate the drive-in experience in parks or city parking lots, East Gwillimbury has an authentic drive-in - a fun-filled experience for children and adults of all ages. Or you can catch that movie you’ve wanted to see at Silver City Cinemas located on Yonge Street. The cineplex is complete with an entertainment centre plus traditional and specialty screens, party rooms, games, food and drinks.
East Gwillimbury has a wide selection of schools in town including the multiple elementary schools from the public board and catholic school system. Secondary schools are planned and being built to accommodate the huge growth in the area. The closest private schools are to the south in Newmarket and Aurora.

My son and I were looking for a one bedroom apartment in Markham and the competition was fierce. Andrew Samwel and Joshua Campbell represented us and worked tirelessly to find us a place under a fierce, extremely competitive September market! He went that extra mile in the application process staying engaged with not only us but by telephone and e-mail to the landlord’s representative to ensure that we made it to the short list of applicants and finally to the successful candidate to acquire the apartment. He and Josh were also engaged afterwards to ensure we were satisfied with everything and that all paperwork was successfully completed to allow us to take possession and move into the apartment. We would highly recommend this team of professionals to any prospective tenant seeking accommodation in the Toronto area. Thanks Andrew and Josh again for your efforts! - Paul Dunbarread more
To say Josh Campbell is an amazing real estate agent is an understatement. I have worked with a few agents over the years, and I would rank him as #1. He is professional, kind and goes out of his way to help. I definitely would work on another deal with him again and highly recommend him. - C.Gread more
Josh has been our realtor since we first entered the housing market 7 years ago. He helped us buy our first home then sell our starter home and upgrade to a family home a few years later. Josh really takes the time to sit down and get to know his clients - what their needs, wishes and goals are. Truthfully, you never really feel like a client with Josh. He has a personalized approach and makes sure you're comfortable every step of the way. Even after the real estate transaction is complete, he’s always available by phone or e-mail to answer any questions you may have about the housing market, property taxes, etc. I highly recommend Josh Campbell for all your real estate needs. - Lisa Starkread more
