On July 26th, 2010 the East Gwillimbury Farmers’ Market opened with 5 vendors in the back parking lot of the Civic Centre in Sharon. Today the market has grown to over 30 vendors with a wide range of produce, baked goods, and products from local artisans.  “I am very proud of our market and truly love to see the impact it has on our community. It is truly a team effort with the incredible vendors, the committee and all the volunteers”, says Liz Gorzo, Market Manager.

Bradford Bypass Connecting Link Update


Posted on Jun 12, 2017

Read our first Bradford Bypass update here http://www.newroads.ca/blog/bradford-bypass-update-highway-400-404-connector/


For more than a decade, both the provincial government and residents of the north GTA have discussed the possibility of building a bypass that would connect two major Ontario highways – the 404 and 400 – north of Newmarket. Despite initial plans, the project (which become known as “the Bradford Bypass”) failed to materialize. However, the highway (which is now being called the “Connecting Link”) recently got one step closer to becoming a reality when it was officially added to the province’s updated Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe region on May 18, following a strong push by the public throughout 2016.


Bradford Bypass Hwy 400 to Hwy 404

According to the Town of East Gwillimbury website, “the Highway 400–404 Connecting Link is a proposed 16.2 kilometre, four-lane controlled access highway that will provide an east-west connection between Highway 400 in Bradford West Gwillimbury and Highway 404 in the Town of East Gwillimbury” that would help to “alleviate congestion on east-west corridors across the Holland Marsh” and “provide an alternative path from eastern Toronto and eastern Greater Toronto Area to Barrie and the rest of the Simcoe area.”


If approved, the Connecting Link would come as a response to the significant population and infrastructure growth that has occurred in the York Region and Simcoe County areas over the past few years. From 2006-2016, there was a population increase of over 20 per cent in York Region, and an increase of nearly 18 percent in Simcoe County*. The Growth Plan projects that the population of each area will rise by hundreds of thousands by the year 2041, and that the amount of jobs in the regions will increase drastically over this time. Approximately 50 per cent of York Region residents currently commute to other regions for their jobs, according to the Town of East Gwillimbury. The highway link would help to alleviate what is currently is, and is expected to be, heavy traffic during rush hours as people commute to and from the surrounding area for work. It would also aid in the development of businesses in the area which in turn would boost the economies of the respective regions.


There are currently no timelines in place for construction and completion of the Connecting Link, however a provincial environmental assessment is already underway.


We will keep you updated on the progress of the project.

Posted on Aug 10, 2016



NewRoads Sponsorship East Gwillimbury Sports Complex


NewRoads Automotive Group enters a sponsorship and partnership with the Town of East Gwillimbury to further develop the East Gwillimbury Sports Complex.


NEWMARKET, September 1st, 2016 – NEWROADS AUTOMOTIVE GROUP and the Town of East Gwillimbury have collaborated to enhance the East Gwillimbury Sports Complex.


The NewRoads Automotive Group plans to display its colourful logo throughout the facility including on the center ice in the West Arena. Along with the ice rink signage and outer décor of the ice re-surfacer, NewRoads will enhance aspects of the facility, including, but not limited to, the digital signboard at the Front Entrance, the doors entering the ice rink arena and various walls within the building.


East Gwillimbury Sports Complex


The President and CEO of NewRoads, Michael Croxon, described his enthusiasm for this collaboration when he said, “I think the partnership with The NewRoads Automotive Group and East Gwillimbury is “a natural.” While all five of our dealerships boarder closely with East Gwillimbury, a significant number of our customers travel south to do business with us. As an organization, we are proud to be heavily involved in the communities we service and look forward to a long association with The East Gwillimbury Sports Complex. To sponsor and have a presence at the Sports Complex is keeping with one of the four pillars that embody our company’s mission statement- community. We are very proud of the growth and success we are seeing in East Gwillimbury and we look forward to driving new memories and continuing to build a strong, healthy, and successful community.”


The Mayor expressed his delight to partner with NewRoads when he said; “We are extremely pleased to have NewRoads part of East Gwillimbury’s growing community. Partnering with a supportive and community focused local business is a step in the right direction as it allows us to provide quality facilities and programs for our residents.”




NewRoads Automotive Group is a leading dealership group in York Region. With strong roots in the automotive industry, NewRoads has been owned and operated by the Croxon family since 1968. Currently with four dealerships, Kia of Newmarket, Richmond Hill Subaru, NewRoads Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, GMC and NewRoads Mazda, NewRoads is planning on opening a new Subaru store in Newmarket in the near future. For more information, please visit: http://www.newroads.ca




The Sports Complex is located in East Gwillimbury at 1914B Mt Albert Rd, East Gwillimbury, ON L0G 1V0. The facility contains two ice surfaces that offer a year round facility for banquets and meetings as well as providing an area for youth hockey, figure skating, and recreational skating. The East arena was constructed in 1972 and the West arena was built in 1998. After renovations in 2012, six new dressing rooms were added along with a new ice surface, a lobby with a lounge, spectator seating, snack bar and pro shop. The 2012 renovation also included fully accessible 2nd floor meeting space and washrooms, new offices for the minor hockey and skating associations and a new 6,000 square foot west-end community hall with banquet service area.

We had the ultimate #SundayFunday last weekend when we spent the day in East Gwillimbury at the Highway 11 Cruisers Car Show!  We’re proud sponsors of this event and have been for years, and it’s definitely something that we look forward to each year. This year we brought a few of our newest and sportiest cars, but were happy to be surrounded by some of the greatest vintage cars and trucks in the region. The great thing about this event is that all of the proceeds go towards the Big Brothers, Big Sisters foundation as well as the SickKids Foundation. Sunday could not have been a better day for this event, the sun was shinning and there was not a cloud in sight!  We’re already dreaming of next years event!

The York Simcoe Riders, a Newmarket based motorcycle club held its 17th annual fundraiser, a Poker Run for MADD. The event welcomed all vehicles, including cars as participants cruised their way around Newmarket, East Gwillimbury, Georgina and ended with a BBQ and music. Even though the sunshine decided to stay behind the rain clouds, the spirit of all participants was terrific. All proceeds went to the York Region Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
