Pickering

Why you'd want to live in Pickering

Pickering (2011 population 88,721) is a city located in Southern Ontario, Canada immediately east of Toronto in Durham Region. It was settled by primarily ethnic British colonists, starting in the 1770s.Most of its growth has come since the end of World War II, and it has received immigrants from around the globe.This was Aboriginal territory for thousands of years. The Wyandot (called the Huron by Europeans), who spoke an Iroquoian language, were the historic people living here in the 15th century. Archeological remains of a large village, known as the Draper Site, have been found here. Later the Wyandot moved west to Georgian Bay, where they encountered French explorers in the early 17th century.The first recorded history of this area was in 1669, when the French Jesuit missionary M. Fenelon noted reaching what he called the Seneca village of Gandatsetiagon, on the shores of Frenchman's Bay. He wintered here, and started missionary work with this Iroquois people.The British took over Canada following their defeat of the French in the Seven Years War, known in the North American front as the French and Indian War. Surveying of the township was probably completed by ethnic British settlers about 1776, who had been migrating from eastern areas of Canada.
