Relocating to Pickering Ontario
Even though Pickering got its start a few centuries ago, Pickering really didn't pick up population until the 20th century. In 1813, Pickering had just 180 residents, 40 more the neighboring Scarborough. There was a large influx of Quaker immigrants in the United States around the 1810s and slowly grew over time. In 1941, the southeastern portion of the Township became the independent town of Ajax and when Ontario became Durham Region in 1974, some of the town lines were modified. Pickering Village was one of the population centres of the original Township and became a part of Ajax. Today, the city covers about 231 km². There are several villages and communities within Pickering including Cherrywood, Green River, and Whitevale.
