Concord was an agricultural community, covered mostly by farmlands when housing developments began in the 1950s. Concord is bordered by Steeles Avenue to the south, Highway 400 to the west, Dufferin Street to the east, and Rutherford Road to the north. Accessed by two provincial highways; Highway 407 and Highway 400.
Concord is one of the largest industrial hubs in the greater Toronto area which is centered around Dufferin St. and Hwy 7 with many large multi-national and domestic corporate headquarters and small business owned stores. Also, from a residential perspective, Concord offers mostly developing complexes of condominiums near the new downtown VMC subway. Included, of course, are townhomes, semi-detached and beautifully kept detached homes in its various neighbourhood pockets.
The Rutherford Go Train provides easy access York University and to the City of Toronto final stop Union Station and heading North bound with stops until its final stop to the Barrie Bus Terminal. Concord has plenty of shopping at Vaughan Mills shopping centre and adjacent you will find The Village Shopping district, a charming outdoor mall from furniture to Health and Beauty, and an eatery. Concord has plenty of recreational opportunities to choose from like Canada's Wonderland, The Sports Village (sports and recreational facility), Repitilia Zoo, Sky Zone, WEGS Sports Bar, with an array of restaurants anything from pub fare to dining, and its own Entertainment Central District just south on Highway 7 containing various lounges, bars, restaurants and Yuk Yuks Comedy Club.
