Markham is one of the fastest growing areas in Ontario. Located north east of Toronto, the neighbourhood is packed with some of the city's best Chinese restaurants and Pacific Mall, billed as North American's "largest indoor Asian mall". Like North York and Scarborough, Markham comprises a number of smaller neighbourhoods including Buttonville, Cornell, Markham Village, Milliken, Thornhill, and Unionville.
