Suburban tract housing in northeastern Markham

Markham is made up of many original 19th century communities (many of which, despite being technically suburban districts today, are still signed with official 'city limits' signs on major roads) and/or each with a distinctive character:

Almira Angus Glen Armadale Berczy Village Box Grove Brown's Corners Buttonville Cachet Cashel Cathedraltown Cedar Grove Cornell Crosby Dollar Downtown Markham Dickson's Hill German Mills Greensborough Hagermans Corners Langstaff Legacy Locust Hill Markham Village Milliken Mills Milnesville Mongolia Mount Joy Quantztown Raymerville – Markville East Rouge Fairways Sherwood - Amber Glen South Unionville Thornhill Underwood, Ontario Unionville Uptown Markham Victoria Square Vinegar Hill Wismer Commons

Thornhill and Unionville are popularly seen as being separate communities. Thornhill actually straddles the Markham-Vaughan municipal boundary (portions of it in both municipalities). Unionville is actually single community with two sub-communities:

original Unionville lying along Highway 7 and Kennedy Road South Unionville is a newer residential community (beginning from the 1990s onwards) south of Highway 7 to Highway 407 and from McCowan to Kennedy Road Upper Unionville is a new residential development being built on the northeast corner of 16th Avenue and Kennedy Road
