Hamilton West is a great spot for families and investors! At the edge of the city, this established community is close to all the trails and greenspace of Dundas and the RBG, and is right near McMaster University and McMaster Children’s hospital. Great highway access too!


Where is Hamilton West? West of the 403 over to where Dundas begins (where Main splits to Osler). Hamilton West is made up of primarily two areas: Westdale and Ainslie Woods (closer to Dundas).

What are the best features of Hamilton West? McMaster (Mac) is the biggest draw in this area. The McMaster campus features a top university, and one of the leading children’s hospitals in the country. With a total student population of 30,000+ and employing 10,000 staff, there is consistently a demand for housing in this area. Though there is a high student population, there are a lot of families mixed in this area as well. 


Thinking of moving to Hamilton West? Whether it’s to invest or to live here yourself, I always suggest coming to get a feel for the areas in person. Westdale has a cute “downtown” feel, with lots of little shops and cafes. The Snooty Fox is a favorite pub in the area! Ainslie Woods has a bit more of a suburban feel, and has more homes that were built in the 50s. Grab a bite at Tally-Ho (the roast beef sandwiches are famous) and go for a drive through some of the streets there to see what I mean!
