Mixed-use Project by SmartCentres
At the heart of our downtown, the community beats in the VMC with the exciting mixed-use facility by SmartCentres.
The VMC is one of Canada’s largest master planned communities, complemented by a world-class transit system offering residents and businesses seamless connectivity throughout the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The Toronto Transit Commission’s (TTC) Line 1 Extension and the new Viva Bus Rapidway on Highway 7 are up and running. In addition, the new SmartCentres Place Bus Terminal is fully operational — completing the final addition to the transit hub at the VMC.
An important part of the VMC is that nearby housing and urban amenities are being leveraged by top employers to attract talent.
Those employers include KPMG, which has located more than 600 staff in the VMC’s first office building, the 15-storey KPMG Tower at SmartCentres Place. Other tenants include Miller Thomson, GFL Environmental Inc. and Harley-Davidson Canada.
Strategically located in one of Canada’s largest economic hub in southern Ontario, the VMC will redefine the 21st-century downtown and be a destination of choice for businesses and residents in the GTA and beyond.

The following is a statement delivered by Vaughan Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua to celebrate the City of Vaughan winning the Ontario Traffic Council’s Project of the Year Award for the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC) Mobility Hub.
Vaughan’s emerging downtown remains a leading destination to attract economic development, build public transit and create new and innovative neighbourhoods.
It’s been 37 years since Canada’s Wonderland opened its gates in Vaughan and Wonder Mountain became a local landmark. And just as the country’s first major theme park rose from a blank canvas, so too is the city’s new downtown.
