Aurora is located north of Toronto, and is part of York Region. It’s another community which Goldfinger Personal Injury Law has been serving for years. Aurora is a growing community, with a population of around 60,000 residents. Aurora is located, according to some, on the Oak Ridges Moraine. Aurora was incorporated as a town in 1889 and settled as a community back in the 1850’s. Aurora was settled so early because Lord Simcoe ordered that Yonge Street be extended towards the Hollland Landing in the late 1790’s, which paved the way for the early beginnings of the community of Aurora. Aurora is the home to one of Canada’s Prime Ministers. Lester Pearson called Aurora his home from 1962 to 1967 when his father served in the town as a minister. The York Region District Catholic School Board and the York District School Board have their head offices in Aurora. One of the largest private boys schools, St. Andrew’s College or SAC is located in Aurora as well. Because Aurora is located on the Holland Landing, land development has always been a sensitive issue for town counsel. There has been a long struggle between development and the conservation of prime green space and Green Belt Locations.
