Brantford is large enough to enjoy all the amenities of city living, yet surrounded by rural communities, giving it a small-town community feel. Nestled along the Grand River, there is easy access to parks with some of the province's best trails.  It also has a large variety of amenities, shopping and restaurants.

The city lies within Canada's economic heartland and has easy highway access and is well connected to GO Public Transit. It is close to larger cities, like Hamilton and Kitchener-Waterloo, and a number of beautiful small towns.
