Malton is found just North of Toronto Pearson International Airport. It's just off the 427 and surrounded by life. It is one of the oldest areas, heavy with industrial/commercial shops highlighted by Pearson Airport in the middle. The first settlement was actually in 1819, surrounding Derry and Airport Road.
In 1914 Malton became a police village and first opened the airport in 1939, now currently Pearson international. It became a common area for wartime industries and homes were in the 1940s for veterans and workers, thus creating the residential area of Malton.
