The first settlers came to Malton in 1819 from England, one of them being Richard Halliday who gave Malton its name (after his birthplace in Yorkshire).
These first settlers were responsible for clearing the land and cultivating farmland; by 1850 several businesses were situated around the "Four Corners" (Derry Road and Airport Road), including a cobbler, hotel, blacksmith and general store.
Being so easily accessible and located just minutes away from the downtown core of Toronto, Malton singles are able to take advantage of the many things Toronto has to offer.
One creative and effective activity is a 25singles speed dating event.
Malton's proximity with Pearson International Airport (previously named Malton Airport), brought in many Polish, Sikh and Carribean immigrants to its mostly British population.
Malton has been home to several notable residents through the years; CBC's The Hour's George Sroumboulopoulos, Hockey Hall of Famer Paul Coffey, and NHL player Mike Peca to name a few.
Malton continued in this line of industry after the war as well, with Abro Canada taking over the Victory plant.
The plant was operated by several other companies throughout the years until being demolished in 2005.
