Whitby is a town in Durham Region. Whitby is located in Southern Ontario east of Ajax on the north shore of Lake Ontario, and is home to the headquarters of Durham Region.  Whitby Township (now the Town of Whitby) was named after the seaport town of Whitby, Yorkshire, England. In addition to Whitby, Yorkshire, the Town of Whitby is also officially twinned with Longueuil, Quebec and Feldkirch, Austria.  The original name of “Whitby” is Danish, dating from about 867 CE when the Danes invaded Britain. It is a contraction of “Whitteby,” meaning “White Village.” The allusion may be to the white lighthouse on the pier at Whitby, Yorkshire, and also at Whitby, Ontario.’ Although settlement dates back to 1800, it was not until 1836 that a downtown business centre was established by Whitby’s founder Peter Perry.

Whitby’s chief asset was its fine natural harbour on Lake Ontario, from which grain from the farmland to the north was first shipped in 1833.  Whitby is also the site of Trafalgar Castle School, a private girls’ school founded in 1874. The building, constructed as an Elizabethan-style castle in 1859–62 as a private residence for the Sheriff of Ontario County, is a significant architectural landmark and Whitby’s only provincial historic site marked with a plaque. The school celebrated its 125th anniversary in 1999.  During the Second World War, Whitby was the location of Camp X, a secret spy training facility established by Sir William Stephenson, the “Man Called Intrepid”. Although the buildings have since been demolished, a monument was unveiled on the site of Camp X in 1984 by Ontario’s Lieutenant Governor John Black Aird.

Whitby combines a small-town atmosphere with the sophistication and amenities of a large urban centre. Arts and culture contribute significantly to the quality of life in Whitby promoting health, family enjoyment, community interaction, learning, and creativity. A visit to Downtown Whitby is an opportunity to savour a culinary adventure with tastes from around the world, and to discover distinctive shops and services. Located on one of the finest natural harbours on Lake Ontario, Port Whitby Marina is a 420-slip award-winning marina operated by the Town of Whitby with year round services. The marina is surrounded by acres of parkland and trails, and close to beaches, restaurants and attractions. The Town maintains 125 parks with 950 acres of active parkland, over 1000 acres of passive open space, and approximately 60 kilometres of trails. Beaches, gazebos and picnic areas are wonderful places to relax and enjoy your leisure time.
