Have you heard? There has been immense growth in Shelburne for the past several months. It seems as though all of the sudden Shelburne has developed from being a small farming town into being the second fastest growing town in all of Canada*.

Toronto has gotten so overdeveloped and overpopulated that for a few years now people have begun moving outward, effecting the GTA including Orangeville and now Shelburne. But some locals have concern that because of this population growth that the pleasant small town atmosphere will disappear.

I myself live just outside Shelburne but travel there for groceries and other amenities and have noticed the growth first hand. Shelburne has become more diverse and developed in the last 5 years then it has for a long time. But although I can see the growth, Shelburne has maintained its small town feel. People are very friendly and if you go out you are likely to see someone you recognize. Shelburne has grown immensely but still maintained its charm.

Growth is a good thing, and Shelburne is not only growing crops now, but also growing in population.
