Living in Ingersoll is all about enjoying life, so why spend hours on the highway when you can be home earlier, ready to enjoy all that Ingersoll has to offer!

Ingersoll must be one of Ontario's easiest towns to commute from:

  • Easy access to Highway 401
  • Quick access to the highway along quiet, uncluttered roads
  • Lower average house prices than in the GTA or London
  • Excellent choice of spacious, new single family homes
  • Spend less cash on gas and car repairs due to a shorter commute and less driving, and thus wear and tear on your car.
  • Milder winters than other parts of Ontario makes for easier driving conditions all-year round
  • Commute to larger cities such as London and Woodstock, with the option of taking back roads, so avoiding highway 401

Less time on the road = more time with the people you love!

Of course, the major benefit of cutting your commute time is that you can spend less time on the road and more time at home doing what you enjoy, such as spending time with your loved ones. You can be home in time for that bedtime story, the school concert, the start of the movie, the live show at one of our festivals, or for a romantic dinner at an Ingersoll restaurant with that special someone. Also, you can even drop the kids off at school and be at work before some of your colleagues have even had a chance to leave the highway!.


Can You Cut your Commute? Just make it a potential cut!

Over 50% of the workers in Oxford County commute to work, and many spend long hours in traffic jams, heading to work in London, Woodstock, Kitchener and even the GTA from towns many miles away along the 401 or 403 highways. Congestion, traffic jams, accidents and bad weather conditions can all put extra stress and hassle into our working day, not to mention the hours spent sitting in the car.


However, if you live in Ingersoll, you could cut your commute by hours each week. Our town lies midway between London and Woodstock, so you can be at work in these towns within minutes, not hours. And to reach companies on the east side of London, you can drive along quiet country roads, and leave the highway behind altogether. Some commutes from Ingersoll to these areas might actually be shorter than from within those cities!


For Kitchener, Waterloo and the GTA, living in Ingersoll gives you easy access to the 401 highway, so you can live in Ingersoll and enjoy a better quality of life, and still work in Southwest Ontario's major cities.

Commute less and help the economy

In 2011, gridlock on roads around the Toronto area was estimated as costing the Ontario economy $6 billion in lost productivity. 76% of commuters believe traffic congestion has become worse since 2009, and 61% believe it has reached crisis proportions. With over 100,000 people moving into the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, (GTHA) each year, why not leave that stress, hassle and congestion behind, and come to live in Ingersoll? You'll be helping our local economy, wasting less of your money and time in travel, reducing travel and housing costs, and improving your quality of life by making it less complicated!
